just a thought... a bad thought...
if folks can no longer feel comfortable saying the generic "happy holidays" then they will feel the need to be more specific about their greetings and tip their hand on their spiritual beliefs.
in other words: assholes like bill o'reilly and whatshisname gibson force folks to say "merry christmas" or "happy channukah" or something else that identifies their religious (or lack of) faith.
looks like just another way for them to identify the jews to me... a verbal yellow star, so to speak.
what is their end goal?
happy holidays and bah hum vee to you too..
