CHRISTMAS trees and Santa today represent no other holiday BUT Christmas, no matter where they originated. I could argue the point that if you say "Happy Holidays" to a Jehovah Witness that you might offend them because they do not celebrate ANY such holiday this time of year. Should we withhold ALL holiday greetings to strangers because we might offend them or other religions who are not celebrating ANY religious holiday now? And besides, I'm not arguing your right to say Happy Holidays if you wish, just please don't make me feel incorrect for wishing you a Merry Christmas.
