To those people sharing memes that say things like “I don’t care what people say, I’m going to say ‘Merry Christmas’ even if it makes people upset!” Have you ever met one person who was upset when you said “Merry Christmas”? Even one?
You’ve been suckered by Fox News, which has managed to convince people that if you say “Happy holidays” then you’re against anyone else saying “Merry Christmas” if they want to. As if the two are opposed to each other in some way.
Don’t be so gullible, angry, and ridiculous. Getting angry if someone says “Happy holidays” to you is the most anti-Christian and anti-Christmas attitude you could have at a time where you’re supposed to be loving each other and promoting good will.
Nobody is stopping you from saying “Merry Christmas” and no one is upset at you if you do say it. The only people I’ve ever seen get mad are the so-called Christians who froth at the mouth when someone says “Happy holidays.”
Don’t be stupid for the holidays.
I’m a Jew. I would prefer ‘Happy Hanukkah” during or close to Hanukkah. I am not bothered by “Happy Holidays” “Happy Kwanzaa” or “Merry Christmas.” Why should I miss out on enjoying Kwanzaa or Christmas because I’m not of the faith? I can support those of other beliefs without losing my own.
