most folks tend to include all of Dec for the Holidays.
well, many other religions including the Jewish religion has feast days during the month.
to say Happy Holidays acknowledges that they too are being at least "hat tipped".
technically Christmas was NOT celebrated as the birthday of Jesus. but simply as his Mass for His Feast Day.
Christians do NOT have the monopoly on the date of Dec 25th for religious observances. a wise Christian realizes this. even though they wish it was. just like various other Christian Observance Days also share them with other religions as well.
But you know the Christian meanings behind those days.

This is laughable. First of all, ever media outlet an shopping mall in America blasts you with x-mas ads and insipid christmas tunes from October to January. Every classroom does some useless project on cut out paper fur trees. Second of all if there WERE a war on christmas, it should probably be spearheaded by Christians. All proof indicates Jesus was born in the summer months, christmas is a compilation of pagan solstice holidays, and christmas in America only promotes greed and secular fulfillment.
How about we speak about the war on science and atheism? That is all too real.

Christmas is like death and taxes it is inescapable in our society and it's probably the worst of the three.

Christmas is about as inescapable as death and taxes and lasts 6 months, what do you want that it be celebrated 365 days a year? Wait don't answer that.
