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 don't think I've ever heard anyone actually say "Season's Greetings" out loud. I see it written on signs frequently, but never spoken.

"Happy Holidays" feels completely neutral to me. I interpret "holidays" to mean "the days many of us have off work", unconnected to however people choose to spend them. It's the December equivalent of "Have a nice day."
