Merry Christmas! Offensive?

Answer this question

  • Merry Christmas! Offensive?

Merry Christmas! I'm an Anglican and I celebrate Christmas. I love the fact that we have such a mulitcultural country. I simply don't provide a seasonal greeting. If someone says it to me I will respond. By looking at someone you can't tell what their religion is or if they have one at all. We should celebrate the holidays within our cultures but at the same time be tolerant.
Positive: 100 %

Yes, I agree. It's not as big an issue here in Canada as it seems to be in the U.S. but there are still some who want to take away OUR holiday greeting. People get way too offended about this greeting when in fact they should understand that any other time of the year we would be saying "have a good day". It's the same thing but since it's Christmas time we say Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas to all

Merry Christmas to you also, from another proud Canadian. Strawberry BigMac, are you from Winnipeg? You need to calm down and respect others. Anyhow, Canadians have been celebrating Christmas for quite some time now, Christmas Day is a statutory Holiday, if you find Christmas offensive, don't celebrate it, go to work. Plain and simple. Just because somebody believes in celebrating a very old and much loved holiday and gets upset when immigrants tell us we can't celebrate our holiday because they are offended, does not make that person a bigot. I would never go to Isreal and complain because I'm offended by Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashana or Hanukkah, that would be dis-respectful. Merry Christmas everybody

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Answer #18 | 22/12 2006 10:14
It’s great that you love Christmas. And people who celebrate other holidays love them just as much. I honestly don't see why people are offended by the idea of wishing everyone a good holiday, and not just the people who celebrate the same holiday as you. Do you really think Jesus is somehow offended that you hope someone else has a good Hanukah? It's just common curtsey, and has been neglected too long, because we're so used to Christianity being the dominant religion in Canada and the US. Perhaps if we understood that acknowledging other religions takes nothing away from our own, this wouldn't be such a touchy subject...
Answer #19 | 22/12 2006 10:14
Merry Christmas! If they don't celebrate, that's not our problem! So MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hope you and your family have a great one!
