I was going to say that that doesn't really sound like a bad thing.

I would say that Happy Holidays is a PC issue, but I implore you to find the greenest haired, chubbiest, hairiest, ****-looking feminist and say Merry Christmas to them and watch them respond to it like you would normally respond to a kind statement.

Parents complained but we both know that deep down they were relieved they wouldn't have to sit through that overly long bs.

I didn't say people were being forced to say "Happy Holidays". Read what I wrote. What I did say was that people were being forced to remove Christmas trees. You want evidence of that? Here:

Bangor teacher talks about having to remove Christmas tree — Bangor — Bangor Daily News — BDN Maine

Woman told to remove Christmas lights to avoid offending non-Christian neighbours - Telegraph

Veteran Told to Remove Christmas From Town Tree Lighting Tradition – Defend Christmas

Albuquerque School Told to Remove Christmas Tree | For God's Glory Alone Ministries

and so on...

No, I want evidence of people being forced to say Happy Holidays or forced not to say Merry Christmas, because that would make me think it's a PC issue. We're not talking about Christmas trees.

Frankly, I don't get what the big deal is about saying Happy Holidays. Not everyone is Christian and their are multiple holidays happening that are not related to christianity.

And schools should not have anything religious in them unless they are a private school.

I think it's a bigger non-issue to cry about than flag burning and microaggressions.
