05:51 pm - Saying "Happy Holidays", revisited
There seem to be a few people commenting on my post about "Happy Holidays", who I'm afraid may have missed my point. I wasn't complaining about people who say "Merry Christmas", I was talking about people who get upset when other people don't say "Merry Christmas". Did I communicate poorly?
See, from my point of view, "happy holidays" includes Christmas. It doesn't exclude it. Thinking it sounds too generic is one thing. Acting like it's a slur against Christians, as Johnny Hart seems to be doing, is another.
