Hey

As some of the members of this web site are not christians they may find it offensive to use signatures and threads wishing them merry christmas.

We should follow President Bushs' lead and just wish happy holidays. After all I am sure that other none christian countries shall be doing the same.

So happy holidays to everyone. ( if you are not on holiday please don't be offended by this message.)

And maybe we should take a leaf out of (the non political) Sir Cliff Richards book. Poppycock to political correctness.

Merry Christmas all at Sats UK :-sugar

If we followed Bush's example we'd all invade an oil producing country to protect the profits of our dad's oil company... ;)

we are what we are, whether your black, white,yellow,red, we are also many religions, christian, jew, hindu, catholic, budism or whatever. i would catergorise myself as a spiritualist, i do not believe in religion as such as i think it is to blame for so many wars, i do believe in one thesis and that is if you are nice to people, they will be nice to you, if you help people they will help you, i believe in karma, what goes around comes around. but the one thing i do not believe in is political correctness because it maintains people are all different,and we should not risk upsetting people through our mannerisms, when in fact we should believe we are all the same, whatever your beliefs we are all apart of one global community, that should help one another, respect one another and live life in peace......
sorry what was the topic of this thread?

If you ask most people of different religions who don't celebrate Christmas if they object to us using the term Merry Christmas virtually everyone will say no, of course not.
I'm still not sure who starts these rumours that we are offending other cultures and religions by saying Merry Christmas in our own country.

I agree with the Batchelor Boy.

What's next, telling us not to drink alcohol in case it offends some religion ?

The local christmas fate is now called the festive fate !

If you were wondering what the purpose of this thread was 6 replies in 2 hours says it all.

I think this thread should stop now before we offend anyone, but we should remember one thing. When we see a job advert or program on TV change the title and see if it's still PC.

Well I'm going to put my two penneth in this thread.

If you would like to wish people a Merry Christmas on this forum you are more than welcome to, if you are Muslim, Bhuddist, Jewish, practice Shinto or any of the many other religions, then when your special festival comes along, you are also more than welcome to send your wishes to those on the forum who are happy to receive them. Those who are not prepared to take the good wishes in the spirit they were delivered, simply ignore them.

It is the Christmas festival a time of happiness where good will is wished to ALL not just Christians, it is not happy holidays, we are not in America and I don't really give a damn about anyone who is narrow minded enough to take offense at the mention of the word Christmas, there, I've said it again. :-googly :-santa3 :-sball :-sugar :-Cbigsmil :-tree :-snowman :-bigsanta :-satbanne :-banner :-Cmany :-window

PS. I can't believe that someone in the politically correct brigade is seriously holding up George Bush as being an arbiter of good taste. :eek: :-lmao:-rofl2

Happy Holiday's is a good expression to use I think. Not new either yanks have always said this for decades before all this pc nonsese was even thought of! I hate the whole deal, it's so hypocritical meeting up with family members you can't stand and or don't want to really see. Awfully commcerial, if you have'nt got a xbox 360 you no one etc etc

After consideration I like this thread - lots of posts.

Just remember there wouldn't be a 'winter holiday' if it wasn't for one man!

I'm not talking about Santa!

To everyone who visits this site 'may your god go with you'

Let us all as bronking says
I do not believe in religion as such as i think it is to blame for so many wars, i do believe in one thesis and that is if you are nice to people, they will be nice to you
If we ALL follow that the world will be a better place

Are we not using the Roman Catholic calender?

Is it not the year of 2005 since Jesus' death?

Is it not freedom of speech?

is it not Forever ENGLAND.

One man One vote (unless you are a woman)
Stand up for what you believe in (Unless you upset some minor ethnic party)
You are who you are (unless it upsets someone else)
Speak your mind (ditto above)
The queens English (if ya aint from the street, thats downtown American streets)
History (should that not be Herstory or manstory/womanstory?)

Do we rewrite History (or see above) so that those that may be offended are made happy although it will be a complete pack of lies?

Merry Xmas or should that be
Happy Christmas?
:-humbug :-humbug :-humbug :-humbug :-humbug :-humbug
Bonne Fete my Arse!
