I got my first "Merry Christmas" said to me yesterday
The lady bagging our groceries at the grocery store said it. She said it with a defiant look in her eyes and she wasn't smiling. My husband and I couldn't even respond because it felt like she was daring us to say something else. So we just both stared at her.
It made me very sad.
And this smartass chimes in...

Oh, and Happy Hanukkah to people as well.In memory of those who have died protecting a society that hasn't always deserved it.

It took until December 10th?
I've been saying Merry Christmas since July 5th. That's the start date of the season on my war on the war on Christmas.Be Not Afraid.

I said "Merry Christmas" to the survey taker just before the election when he called my Mom's house during dinner. Mom doesn't answer unknown callers. So I pretended to be an easily led female octogenarian until the last minute when I told them I didn't know who to vote for and wished them a Merry Christmas.

I don't actually believe there's any kind of real war on Christmas going on, other than the occasional atheist with Daddy issues suing over some public nativity display. They've been around for a while. When I worked retail, I said different greetings/sale endings for each customer, randomly, so I wasn't saying the same thing repeatedly. I wished my friends at the middle eastern restaurant "Happy Holidays", because I don't want to offend them, but I hope they enjoy the season. They might be muslims, but they decorated their restaurant for Christmas. No menorahs, though.
There is the other ongoing war with the secular Christmas and the Christian Christmas. But religious figurine makers have found a tacky way to combine them into figurines of Santa worshipping baby Jesus.
