I don’t think many people (at least not many Catholics) would say “Merry Christmas” to people that they know are not Christians.
But why would anyone be offended by being wished a Merry “Anything”. One person said that he feels excluded from society when everyone wishes him a “Merry Christmas”.
IMO, he’s looking for an excuse to feel offended. How could including someone in well-wishes ever be considered exclusionary?!
I could see his point if those people knew he was Jewish and insisted on wishing hiim a Merry Christmas but never a Happy Hanukkah, since they’re so close on the calendar.
What do you think? Is this person looking for offense where none is intended?
Happy Hanukkah to the Jewish members here.
