When have I ever said that Merry Christmas was offensive?
My point all along is when "Christians" start getting all huffy If I DON'T say exactly what they deem I should say.

Please see the title of this thread. "Accused of warring against Christmas because you said "Happy Holidays""

You claimed that the way I celebrate is christian ritual. I asked you to explain how a decorated tree, candy canes, mistletoe, etc were christian ritual, which you still haven't accomplished. Saying that christians have trees too, in no way explains how a christmas tree is a CHRISTIAN RITUAL.
Would you like to try again?

I would gladly continue, but my post will be deleted. I do not want to upset the OP or the moderators. Enjoy the Xmas tree, you have a point.
