    So...you post a video that preaches inclusiveness (sort of).

    Yet once again your list of options in the poll excludes all who are not cons or libs.

    Bizarre.

    The question that ought to be asked is why does anyone care about what Ben Stein thinks?

    No one is offended by Merry Christmas. However there are some people that seem to be offended anytime someone uses any other holiday greeting but Merry Christmas.

    Well, I'm not too sure Saturnalias has that big of a resurgence yet and Hanukkah doesn't usually have a fixed date -- perhaps it is a stubborn insistence on correctness rather than political correctness that makes some people go goo goo ga ga?

    And the irony is that people complaining out it are essentially making a political correctness argument. The only think that is PC for them is Merry Christmas. I always say Merry Christmas myself, but i don't even give a second thought to it if someone tells me Happy Holidays or whatever instead.

    Have a Merry Christmas.

    Wrong. Ignorantly wrong...

    I'm not offended [someone went out of their way to acknowledge a celebration for us all] but, if some says happy holidays or season's greeting, I always respond with a Merry Christmas.

    It's the reason for the season.

Can you say hypocrite..??
    Maybe past commercialism. Most of our stuff is old. We usually add/replace a decoration or two each year as they go bad.
