Yes, That's Right, I said it, "Happy Holidays."
Because as you all very well know, and may I quote my ol' chum Billy O'Reilly,
"There is a war, on Christmas."

Excuse me, I'm a little slow, but isn't there more than one holiday in December?
Yep, I'm almost positive that there is. So wouldn't it be just um, what's that word, ahh yes, POLITE to say "Happy Holidays?"
And what really gets me upset is when ol' Billy, in all his blotchy glory, tells me that non-Christians aren't and shouldn't be upset by "Merry Christmas" but saying "Happy Holidays" makes every Christian shit a golden brick! And not just the "red-blooded, football lovin', God-fearin" kind, EVERY CHRISTIAN.

The only reason I bring this up, is because while I was going around my school and other places gathering signatures for a Vegan Menu Option at my school, I said "Thank you very much, and Happy Holidays!" I had somebody look at me wierd and say, "You mean Merry Christmas?"
(Ooh, a possible last debate before Winter Vacation! I almost pissed my pants!)

"Well, if you would like me to say that, then 'Merry Christmas' other-wise I don't know who's Christian, Jewish, Wiccan, etc. by looks so I say, 'Happy Holidays.' "

"Just say Merry Christmas, son."

"I prefer not to, just as you prefer 'Merry Christmas' I think it's better just to give every holiday a nod than to single out a specific one."

He laughed and walked away, and it made me wonder, why do some want to single out a specific religion, instead of giving a general greeting? Ah, Oh well, by the way that prick never signed my petition, so I have one thing to say to him,

And to Everyone, Please Have A Wonderful Holiday Season!
