Most people who celebrate other-than-Christmas are happy doing their own thing and expect nothing from anyone else. Stores decided to be all inclusive with "Happy Holidays". The staunch Christians took it as a slap in the face to Jesus and started bitching about how everyone ELSE is bitching and stealing their holiday ... and to date, I've never heard a non-Christian bitching about the majority calling it "Christmas". Ever.
I celebrate Yule and I love Christmas trees, presents, feasts and all the "traditional Christmas" things, plus all of my family celebrate Christmas, so we celebrate on 12/25 with everyone else ... happily.
And I never bring up that most "Christmas traditions", um, aren`t ... until someone gets pissy and accuses me of "not being Christian but having the NERVE to enjoy Christmas".
We`re willing to share, but don`t steal OUR holiday and claim we`re stepping on YOUR toes. lol.
