How about those rabid, foaming at the mouth people in the mall protesting to "Keep Christ in Christmas" or, to take Him out? The war on Christmas. Even when people write "Xmas," they are keeping Christ in Christmas because the first letter in the Greek word for 'Christ' is 'chi,' and the Greek letter 'chi' is represented by a symbol similar to the letter 'X' in the modern Roman alphabet. Hence "Xmas" is indeed perfectly legitimate abbreviation for the word "Christmas." And those "Happy Holiday" people, the word comes from Old English hāligdæg, from hālig holy + dæg day. "Holiday" means "Holy Day" so they are still wishing you a holy day. These are just very old artifacts of different languages and if anyone wants to get religion out of their language, good luck with that.
These attempts at non-denominational holiday tidings come as younger Americans seem to be shrugging their shoulders at going to church, at organized religion and hypocritical philosophies. But, you know, like, I mean, I resonate with them for I am sick and tired of every week when Thursday comes around; There are people who want to take Thor out of Thursday because it might offend someone. Well, how about all of the pagans? What out offending them because you are taking Thor out of Thursday? Thursday is "Thor's" - day! If you aren't recognizing Thor then who are you recognizing? Thursday is recognizing the Son of Odin! Thursday is one of the few days left that we can recognize Thor! Leave that day alone and tell everyone "Blithe Thor's day," not "Happy Thursday."
