Why do people get upset about saying Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays -
They come up with all sorts of reasons, religious, this, that and whatever. I put it down to ignorance and bad manners.
So Merry Christmas to one and all
If they don't celebrate christmas, if they're not christian, then why the hell would you expect them to smile at you and thank you for shoving your religious dogma in their faces?
Yeah, we seen what those get us..... further excuse to shove more religious crap down one's throat.
Tell someone to fk'off..... and they usually do, otherwise, they'll lose their Christmas spirit & cheer and prove how deep their holiday joy really goes.

I guess there are advantages to being in the Maritimes. We say Merry Christmas.
Indeed, I don't have any issues with it, I still celebrate christmas, I still say merry christmas.... but I also get how it can annoy or piss some people off.
Think about it..... one person is minding their own business and then someone comes along and say Merry Christmas. They get pissed and tell the guy to get bent, and then the guy who said Merry Christmas is all upset and offended that he didn't get the response he was expecting.....
.... don't get all upity over the response you get..... you started it.
