Funny that the weeks leading up to Christmas, the atheists were "Happy Holidays" thus and that.
They even defended themselves, saying that Christmas and New Years are the holidays.
Now it's New Year's Eve and the "Happy Holidays" greetings are gone...
Imagine that.
There are several winter holidays besides Christmas. Saying "Happy Holidays" is the much more considerate greeting when you're dealing with people that may not celebrate Christmas.

We're pretty much all on the same calender around here, so generalizing for the New Year is pointless.

Bullshit.

Happy Hanukkah is still Happy Hanukkah.

Happy Kwanza is still Happy Kwanza.

Happy Festivus even remains.

But Merry Christmas?! Nope, that's Happy Holidays.

Even though the people that endorse "Happy Holidays" only use it for one day, Christmas.

Go figure.

Dennis Prager offered a devastating retort to that nonsense you are spouting.

It proves you are wrong, but you won't answer it honestly.

Imagine you are walking down a dark street at night in an unfamiliar American city. It is poorly lit, and off the main thoroughfare. You hear footsteps approaching from behind you, and turn to see 4 male youths walking toward you. You start to become tense.

Would the knowledge that they had just come from a Christian bible study make you:

A. Feel better

B. Feel worse

C. Feel the same

No honest person answers anything other than "A".

And it proves your whole weeks' work to be a lie.

It's a little early for the War on Christmas nonsense, isn't it? In my opinion, it would be a bit more effective if you wait until at least November.

Well in Oz, all the major holidays coincide with our long summer holiday, what you guys call summer break.

Not everyone celebrates Solstice.

Not everyone celebrates New Years.

Not everyone celebrates Chinese New Years.

Happy Holidays covers all of it, including the summer holidays/summer break.

We live in a somewhat polite society.

Say you celebrate Solstice and I don't, I'll say happy holidays, out of respect for you and because it covers everything, therefore, my summer holiday too.

Just so you know Tide, had I been explaining this just to you, I would have used less words.

Happy New Year Tide with Beach!

That's silly. Why would anybody feel tense when people walk toward them? Only sheep would answer anything other than "C".

tell me are that you are that insecure that you resent others when they realize the United States is a MELTING POT, full of a diverse group of cultures and religions?

There are many religions in America, so why not be all inclusive and allow others to say Happy Holidays.

Saying Happy Holidays is all inclusive, respectful of Christians, Jews, and all others.
Merry Christmas isn't, plain and simple.

The people that say Happy Holidays are inclusive, it includes Hanukkah, Kwanza, Saturnalia and all other holidays that occur this time of year

I don't know, if they were coming from an Aryan Nation Christian Bible study and I were a black man, Jewish, Puerto Rican, Italian, Spanish, Indian, or any non pure white American not only would I become tense, but I'd have to resort to stand my ground laws
