It's nice to hear something positive. Fortunately it isn't as bad where I live as it is in some places.
What bothers me though is that in previous years I would think nothing of saying "Happy Christmas" or "Merry Christmas" and if I liked the look of the Christmas cards, I'd buy the ones that said "Happy Holidays or Season's Greetings". It didn't matter to me how I said it, just as long as I was extending my wishes to friends, family, strangers, check out clerks, etc.
Since the big "whoopla" the last few years, I actually feel like I'd be offending someone if I sent them cards or extended greetings that don't say "Merry Christmas".
You know what I mean? I'm going out of my way to make sure everyone else knows I'm celebrating a very Merry Christmas and spending time around my Christmas Tree.
It wasn't a big deal to me once upon a Christmas Time, but each year it seems like more people and businesses are adapting their language to please folks who just want to have presents and don't want to be associated with any other part of Christmas.
