I will say "Happy Holidays".

Because I am disrespecting Christmas and Christians?
Absolutely and Resoundingly NO.  It is because I speak very deliberately and I use words and expressions thoughtfully and I choose to include all people I see in my good wishes.
When I say "Happy Holidays" I absolutely mean that I wish YOU and yours a very happy holiday of your choice.

Please, accept that certain parts of the media (Bill O'Reilly, for example) have created such fear of a "war on Christmas" that simply isn't there.  There is NO war on anything.  Only a desire to include all people and to spread well wishes to all.
I can not know what your belief system is simply by looking at you.  And so I will always choose "being kind and respectful to all"...

While I get what you're saying, the whole idea of pretending there's some "war on Xmas" is to do what religion has always done, and that is to keep the simple and the slave-minded riled up against anything which might negatively impact the flow of tithes.

You are right Glen - they are hypocrites.

It is such hypocrisy for the christian right to denounce war on christmas and attacks against christians when the christian right does the in your face imposition of "morals" and the affront to the majority is manufactured.

I also prefer to say Happy Holidays. It makes more sense to me to be inclusive.
