People who say "Season's greetings" because supposedly "Merry Christmas" is offensive only to turn around and say "Happy Hanukkah" or "Eid Mubarak" grind my gears.

Same goes for people who snark on Evangelicals but god forbid if you make a comparison between Muslims and said Evangelicals.

How about we stay consistent about how we treat different faiths, huh?

I might be becoming more conservative but it really pisses me off this Christmas time.

I literally don't care.... Yeah, it's virtue signaling, but at the end of the day it means the same thing as wishing someone a Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah, or any other holiday wish. It's a nice thing to say, so I can't get bent out of shape over it.

I say Merry Christmas, for the record, though, as I agree it's a bit silly to go out of your way to virtue signal when it's the sentiment that matters. I celebrate Christmas, but if a Jewish person said Happy Hanukkah to me, I'd take it in the same spirit. I'm not even really that religious, I never go to church. But it's cultural as much as religious to have a holiday to celebrate in late December. The details are sort of irrelevant.
