    Is saying "Merry Christmas" to them acceptable, or is that at attack?

    doesn't offend me, neither does a business saying something like "Happy Holidays" as it covers all the holidays, it makes sense for them

    I celebrate Christmas and I do not believe in a God
    but like some Christians get upset about "Happy Holidays" some may get upset with "Marry Christmas"

    now if you wish me Merry Christmas today, I might look at you weird, But I would do the same if you wished me a happy thanksgiving today as they are both more then a month away

    yes, he did not send a card for each holiday, he sent one card for the entire holiday season, but Obama did wish people merry Christmas too, is Trump gonna start a war on all other holidays?

    Presidents going back about 60 years didn't have "Merry Christmas" on their WH Christmas cards either. Including GW Bush, who was an Evangelical Christian. Loons like the people at WND went nuts.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/bush-holiday-cards-cause-stir/

    Obama didn't have Merry Christmas on his cards, either. But he said the words in his annual Christmas message/video. As they all did.

    This "war on Christmas" nonsense is Trump throwing red meat at his fan base. Again.

    I posted that same link earlier. How dare Obama say "Merry Christmas", every year, for 8 straight years? That Muslim commie Kenyan bastard. He wrecked the alt-right talking points!

    Technically, it would be appropriate to wish someone an evil Halloween.

    As a Catholic kid, the cool part about Halloween was that the next day is All Saint's Day - a Catholic holiday. Disneyland celebrated this with Catholic Schools Day. So us Catholic kids had the run of the place.

    The public school kids had to go to school. Neener neener neener. :D

    Happy Halloween just sounds better. That's why Merry Christmas took off, it just sounds better than Happy Christmas.

    People were just merrier back then. Now, only liberals are merry and gay.

    Of course now they are gay and marry.

    Well, thank god that Trump is going to win this war on Christmas. Maybe someday we'll have a Christmas Tree in the White House again. Or one on Rockefeller Center. Maybe they'll allow people to hang stockings again and go to Church on Christmas Eve. Hell - maybe even someday, a white, Christian dude will be President.

    I agree, it's the sick twisted pc social pressure to say Happy Holidays rather than Merry Christmas! that if finally being stood up to.

    Yea Trump!

    What gets me is that aren't all the people whinging about the war on christmas saying "merry christmas" to each other? Aren't all the stores and businesses they own do the same? Isn't it a choice and not an obligation?

    And considering that the religious aspect of christmas has been almost entirely subsumed by a pagan display of both generosity and greed,seems like the "war" gives the religious the perfect deflection from falling attendance, even worse adherence to dogma and regular financial and sexual scandals amongst themselves. Why ask really hard questions about the practice of their faith when they can whinge about their own 'oppression'?

    People whining about "happy holidays" are the ones being snowflakes obsessed with political correctness. Happy holidays isn't what they want to hear, they want to hear other words. Get over it.

    Personally I've lost nothing, it's our society that suffers as the anti Christian left wing chips away at the foundation of our Christian values society. They pretend it hurts their feelings when people say Merry Christmas so they do all they can to get those words on the not PC list and "strictly vorboden" to say in public.
