I recently had someone tell me that I offended them when I wished them a "Merry Christmas", that I should be more considerate of other beliefs and use a more neutral greeting like "Happy Holidays". It's not my intention to offend anyone but I AM a Christian, my family and I do recognize Christmas for what it is based on OUR beliefs by recognizing that Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Is it healthy to be a cookie cutter society where we can no longer appreciate the views and beliefs of others? I personally found their reaction to my holiday greeting and gesture offensive. What are your thoughts on this??
