Kate at The Radula wrote good thoughts on the imaginary, but still destructive, “War on Christmas”:
Perhaps, dear followers of Christ, there is no war on Christmas. Perhaps the war is on the world, a war that YOU are waging on other religions, other cultures, and those who have equal faith, and equal right to express their faith (or lack there-of). Perhaps you feel that even acknowledging that there are other ways to believe, (God help anyone who says “Happy Holidays”) is an attack on you, but isn’t acknowledging your holiday while acknowledging that there are others the loving and peaceful solution? Why does the Hindu, the Jew, the Muslim, the Atheist, HAVE to wish you a Merry Christmas, and ignore their own faiths and the faiths of others?
