You are completely ignorant and devoid of respect for other people.
How selfish of you.
You are what we call an "entitlement bitch".
YOU, the ONE ANGRY CUSTOMER in a thousand or more, decide that people in the
service industry should be able to read your mind and know whether you are
Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Pagan, whatever...and that makes you right?
Go get an education.
The whole anti-"Happy Holidays" movement is stupid. Get over yourselves.
Christians have that whole "What would Jesus do?" question they ask themselves
in rough situations, and I bet Jesus wouldn't flip out over semantics.
If someone is wishing you a nice day, a good time with family during the coming
weeks, then for Pete's sake, just smile and say "thank you," you ungrateful
And for the record, Christmas is set on a pagan holiday -- Winter Solstice. :)
Even non-Pagans use the term "Yule" around the Christmas holidays. Yule is
celebrated on the Winter Solstice (December 22nd), on the shortest day of the
year. Since the days get longer from this point in the year, Yule is a
celebration of the returning sun and the rebirth of the God who died at
Hallowe'en. As with Easter, the Christian story of the birth of Jesus fits
nicely with the Pagan mythology of a God reborn. Traditions such as wreaths and
Yule logs are remnants of the original beliefs. Gifts were exchanged at Yule
long before the Wise Men offered their gifts to the baby Jesus.
