I guess I'm not seeing it as a removal of Christmas but an inclusion of all the other faith's celebrations. It's a good day when someone wishes you well, whatever terms they use.

You're as wise as you are crafty and as beautiful as you are dangerous.

Tiny that is very well stated and I feel the same way. If I made it sound like I only accept Christmas as the holiday this time of year then I apologize, that is just the one I celebrate. However, the popular view of PC doesn't seem to see it that way. I haven't been in retail for years but when I worked in retail (part time) we had rules about wishing people Merry Christmas, but there were no rules about wishing someone Happy Hanukah, or happy Quanza. If retail companies have become more fair in their practices then I probably am misinformed, due to the long time I have been out of customer service. I might be wrong but I think this is what Rebel was irritated at. Not the acceptance of other holidays but the actual unfairness of PC.

No Odhinn, you didn't come across like you only accept Christmas. I agree that this PC movement has gotten well past what it was intended to do.

I was just musing.

I am a little late getting here. The one thing that my wife and I have noticed is that a lot of people are putting Xmas on their signs. I know it is just lazyness, but it seems that they are taking Christ out of Christmas. I come from an area without much religous diversity so I don't have to worry about being holiday PC. I also call thanksgiving turkey day...I hope that isn't offensive.
