But as in Christianity, as Islam grew up it had to cut its connections to Judaism be removing anything that would be considered a Jewish tradition in written form. In non-written form many still exist in the Middle East just without the religious connotations.

Forgive me for being obtuse. What's so wrong with wishing a Chrstian "Merry Chrstmas?"

Take one look at me, and it's pretty clear I hold no stock in yushke as anything other than a dead Yid.

Since you like to hide your meanings of what you type behind the use of another language, I'll translate for others to what you said:

Take one look at me, and it's pretty clear I hold no stock in Jesus Christ as anything other than a dead Jew.

It seems very reasonable for a Jew to say "Merry Christmas" to a Christian.

Just like I may say "Happy Birthday" to another person on their birthday.

And that's your opinion. But in that case write down 1/13 and wish each Muslim you meet a happy salutation for Milad un Nabi celebrating the birth of Mohammad.

That is a very good point.

I will go to the Islam forum and ask them what is the most accepted way to wish Muhammad a happy birthday.

Actually there is also the holiday of Kwanzaa (Kwanzaa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)!

The last time I heard of any reference to it was in NYC in the early 80's and never again past that decade. As far as I recall it was a created by an American in the 60's to celebrate Black African Heritage.
