Everyone seems to be blogging and exchanging emails about whether it's appropriate to say Merry Christmas".
Of course it's appropriate! We supposedly have both freedom of religion and freedom of speech, right?
What I wish is that everybody would just go on and celebrate whatever holiday they celebrate, and not get offended when others do the same.
Wishing someone a happy holiday or a merry Christmas should be accepted as an expression of good will, and not another reason to be offended.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! (or whatever)
