Question of the week: Does ‘holiday’ season offend you?

By
From page A11 | November 30, 2012 |

It’s the holiday season. Or is it Christmas? There is a growing backlash against stores that insist this is the “holiday” season rather than Christmas.

Does it offend you if they do so? Participate in this week’s poll:

Last week’s results:

Will you do significant online shopping this holiday season?

Yes: 61 percent

No: 39 percent

    This IS the holiday season! Surely folks have better concerns than getting worked up over semantics? Merry Christmas AND Happy Holidays everyone! :)

    I also say both--depending on who I'm speaking too. And if I know a little more about what the person celebrates, I'll give aide specific greeting. There are other religions besides Christianity with celebratory days. It strikes me a little that people are offended by having to share "greeting space" with other faith groups. Bottom line, generic greeting seems appropriate until you know the specifics, then specific greeting is the more thoughtful choice.

    The government-media complex annoys me for asking such a ridiculous question. Please remember what the communists did and said to destroy other nations.
