Well said! I wear a little "Merry Christmas" pin to clue folks in that they can say "Christmas" to me without fear of offense, but I certainly don't object to other holiday greetings. It's nitpicking to insist that there's only one acceptable phrase for wishing someone a happy Christmas season. There's enough stuff to pick a fight about the rest of the year---these folks should get a life and enjoy the holidays! (And allow the rest of us to enjoy them without their hair-splitting.)
