When I was a child, it was so painful to go around and hear everyone saying merry christmas and know that I would never be allowed to participate , that I could never fully appreciate it or be included unless I stopped being Jewish in its purest and most authentic sense. I was proud and terrified of my religious affiliation. Proud because of what we had survived, but terrified by the fact the whole world was so different, and everything so much easier and happier for Christians, including the non-religious ones. I was jealous, I was humiliated, I was embarrassed. "I don't celebrate that," I would say, and was infuriated when my aunt and uncle and cousins would make fun of Judaism and celebrate Christmas. I wasn't real when I did that one time with them. It makes me nauseated to even think about. I wasn't me anymore. All over school they had christmas everything, and they all laughed and were excited and felt included and special. All I could do was watch. I wanted so badly to keep things separate. I am Jewish and you are Christian. I thought that was the idea, and I wanted to keep things special for myself. This is for you and that is for me. As a Jew, Christmas for me is difficult in part because of its German affiliation, and in part because I do not want to water down my Judaism. If I tell people, "Merry Christmas," it hurts. I don't feel like myself and I don't actually get to celebrate and enjoy what they have, and never would. Even if I tried, I'd be one step away at least, and the struggles of my ancestors to hold onto Judaism would be lost. It is special not to celebrate christmas, and I want people to know that. I shouldn't have to lie and pretend that it is ok with me. When people tell me "Merry Christmas," I disappear, like the Jews have always faced.People don't see me, they talk to an idea of me, and usually I just cower and say what it is they want to hear because people are so angry. In this country I should be able to be myself, tell people who I really am, and not be punished for it. I don't celebrate Christmas, and won't be having one. If I tell you Merry Christmas, its because I've willing become an ornament, or a decoration of some kind. It is not that I don't want you to have a Merry Christmas, its that I don't want to have to exchange niceties so you can have your party the way you want. I'm not here for that. Sometimes when the salvation army would ring their bell and I would donate, they'd say, "Merry Christmas" and I'd get up all of my courage and say, "and Happy Channukkah," back. They'd all the take breath and say, "of course, Happy Channukkah." Why is this so hard for people to conceive of? You say Merry Christmas for a full month or more before the holiday comes, so why not for Channukah too? We should acknowledge the celebration of HOLY days as well as holidays so that we recognize each other and who we really are. We should celebrate one another as we actually are. Do you want me to say, "Merry Christmas?" Why? It makes me want to puke. I feel so left out. I feel like a phony and fraud. I don't want to do it. Please don't tell me, "Merry Christmas, " because its just a painful reminder of how I won't be having one and how the Christians get everything they want. I don't particularly like, "happy holidays," because I've become like a living greeting card. What holidays are these? Ones that I am obligated to participate in so that I can be a good American? But why?

why is Christmas the only holliday that cant be said? not everyone celebrates St Patricks Day, Easter, Thanksgiving but they arent "offensive" to say to people. I think people need to understand that the word "offended" is a cover up for saying "forbidden".

People of other cultures doesn't want to hear merry Christmas but are willing to make billions off of our CHRISTMAS holiday by having sales in their stores. While shopping , avoid stores who are having holiday sales and go only to stores who are having Christmas sales. If you don't like us Christians CHRISTMAS day then don't be a hypocrite by making money off our day. I have co workers who claim to be atheist but sure willing to collect that 2000 dollar CHRISTMAS bonus check.

Although I may disagree with Trump on many things, this is one thing I agree with him, just say Merry Christmas, it is no big deal. I am an Atheist and I say it all the time. When you don’t celebrate a holiday, no biggie to say the holidays greetings. Why would I get offended? I have friends who are not chinese that would say Happy Chinese New Year to me during Chinese New Year and similarly, when I have friends who celebrate Hari Raya or Deepavali. I say the respective greetings to them. I am not American btw. Singaporean

It’s Merry Christmas you idiot lefties, what’s the point of saying “Happy Holidays” during Christmas times when any other holidays you can say the same thing? There’s no reason to celebrate Christmas, if you take away the “Christmas” part. But hell, I like having vacation in winter, I want to keep my Christmas

America isn't Multi-cultural.
Rather it's Multi-ethnic.
That means we should respect other, but put our own on first place.
And not be like hellshit-hole EU where most societies are secular- meaning that their own tradition is less important than minorities'.

I have never wished Happy Holidays to anyone. I wish always Merry Christmas when I use English language during Christmas season time. I agree 100% with President Trump with this issue. Donald Trump is the best US president since Ronald Reagan and I love his common sense and honest way to tell truth. It is Christmas and it shall stay Christmas in future too. I personally dislike pretending hypocritical multicultural propaganda talk like "Happy Holidays" wishes during Christmas season time. If some people don´t like Christmas and Christmas wishes they can freely move out of our cultural areas. We have not any reason to be ashamed of our own culture and cultural traditions. Greetings from Northern Europe, Finland, and Happy New Year 2018!

Lol as an American who hates Trump this all happened because of the far left libs along with the far right conservitives hate each other and drug us all down with them making issues out of nothing. Its funny the whole time this was happening witch has been more intence over the past ten years, capitialism and greed has destoryed Thanks giving by intrudicing shopping on thanks giving insteed of the day after on Black Friday! So an educated person would realize that saying Marry Christmas is not disrespecful to other religions or a way of showing dominance or using it to convert people, but is just a loving greeting you say if your celibrate christmas and if you don't and someone says it to you you know as an educated person that's its just a greeting and its polite to respond in kind!
