Merry Christmas, In Spite of the Spoilsports!
By the way, this started because while out at the store earlier, someone was raising money for "abused children", with signage portraying Christmas trees and Santa Clauses, that SAID "During this Christmas season..." I dropped some money in the bucket, and wished the person a Merry Christmas, and got my rear end chewed for the trouble. I just smiled and told said person I knew the history of the tree and the "seasonal celebration" (they were trying to "educate" me), and to have a nice day and then I left, but inside I was seething. This PC stuff is going too far when you advertise for donations, using Christmas signage and words, and then get offended when someone wishes you a Merry Christmas. That's wanting your cake and eating it too.
