Hi. I just received a message in my profile section from someone who wants me to have a nice xmas. It was a sparkly picture of a xmas tree.

It made me uneasy since I'm so new here and this was from a total stranger. Since I had received a snarky messages like that on purpose on another site (discussion about religion) it makes me wonder:

DID ANYONE ELSE on this board get that message??

I guess nobody hates me enough to send me snarky x-mas messages. I'm so sad.

I wasn't implying that someone hated me. I'm wondering about the person's motives and extent of insults.

I didn't get it either. In any case, since you said you are relatively new, welcome to the board.

Most people on CD are really nice and welcoming.

I'm not Christian and I get holiday wishes. I don't take them as a personal attack, I just accept them in the spirit in which they were sent. When I send holiday greetings they are those of my beliefs even though not everyone shares them.

That being said, welcome to CD and have a blessed Yule.

I haven't gotten one, and I wouldn't be offended if I did...mainly because Christmas is the religious holiday, while "X-mas" is the commercial phenomenon.

I haven't got any because my E-mail box says 'No Junk mail, please'.

Oh, and welcome, Tigerlady (Begal or siberian?)
