Is the "War on Christmas" real?

This is just another whine from people who find that their notion of how the world should work is resisted. A lot of them are tired of the annual orgy of X-mas stuff and some of us are sick to death of the carols and tin pan alley X-mas songs descending like a mist of insecticide from every store speaker.

Then "some of you", who hate American tradition, should move to a country more to your liking. I hear that they don't celebrate Christmas in Iran.
Christmas is a traditional AMERICAN holiday, and the ONLY holiday on the month of December (Chanukah is not a holiday, it's an observance. It's observed by lighting a candle every night for eight days and saying prayers, not by gift-giving).
95% of AMERICANS celebrate Christmas in some form. I happen to be Jewish, and we have a Christmas tree, buy Christmas gifts, AND light candles for Chanukah. A Christmas tree has nothing whatsoever to do with the Christian religion.

Its the holiday season. It's an American Tradition. We do it every year, just as we do Birthdays, anniversaries, etc. If you feel you do not want to participate then stay home, be miserable, and let the rest of us enjoy life. And one more thing. MERRY CHRISTMAS! fa la la la la, la la la.

Happy Holidays is an inclusive term to celebrate everyone's holidays during the season. It is impossible to look at an individual and determine their faith. So as to avoid possible confrontations Happy Holidays is used. As Christians are the majority there is no way that there is a war on Christmas. They play Christmas music for a month straight in stores.
