This is your only warning. I use “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays” interchangeably. If you take that as an opportunity to go off on a rant about how I used the wrong one, I will punch you in the throat.
The fact is if you have to make the holiday season part of your culture wars, you have failed miserably to understand the season. It is a time for finding the best in people. If your default position is to go off on some self-righteous tirade about how you’re somehow being attacked because someone doesn’t do it the way you want, you are a very bad person. No one is stopping you from saying “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas.” Just because someone doesn’t do things the way you think they should does not mean you’re way of life is under attack. Leave that bullshit to overpaid pundits who make their living scaring people into buying foot powder. ‘Kay?
Happy Holidays, folks. And have a Merry Christmas.
