They laugh at us because we post Christmas threads on international forums?

If you grew up hearing Happy Holidays, you would give absolutely zero ****s about it.
Nah I'm not upset. You'd know if I was upset. It just annoys me.
And by the way, if you lived somewhere where all your life they'd said "Happy Christmas" and now suddenly people were saying "Happy holidays" you'd be upset too. It's what you're used to.

It certainly is a PC issue though. There have been many instances of Christmas trees being taken down because "it offends other faiths", and whether the usage of "Happy Holidays" is an effect of that or not, there's no question that the actual meaning of Christmas is being pushed into the background so as not to offend other faiths, but as I say, we as Christians are the only ones who have to do this. Seems a little unfair and perhaps biased.

Also, what does the bolded part refer to??

I think the West should put aside their differences with America so we can laugh at the real enemy: Sweden.

Surely Norway, as the original source of the Christmas tree, should be the real enemy?

Also, I forgot: do I have to call it a Holiday Tree now? I would not be surprised. Watch this space... Not all the time, I mean. Go have some food, you look like you're ready to drop.

The largest Christmas tree in Europe: 230 feet high.

Nope. I genuinely do not care that they are changing the way that some people tell me to have a nice day.

Please show me evidence of people being forced to say Happy Holidays instead of doing it on their own (or their company's) accord. Then maybe I'll be afraid of the PC bogeyman. You only notice it with Christianity because of how big of a majority it is. What seems a bit unfair to me is that some people have holidays that they celebrate at this time of year but they're told to have a merry christmas because "that's just the way we do it round here!"

Sweden has feminist snowplows. They deserve what they get.

At the elementary school that my sister teaches at they were forced to stop doing Christmas concerts as they were, and I kid you not, "culturally insensitive."

I always hated doing that **** as a child though so the kids were probably pretty stoked.
