Instapundit has been linking to a lot of stuff about the use of that phrase. Lileks, for example, is concerned about the apparent taboo being associated with it, as if it's an imposition of one's religion on another. Jeff Jarvis thinks the whole thing is overblown; there's no religious war brewing here, it's just the same old stuff resurfacing in anticipation of a major holiday with religious origins. Hugh Hewitt nevertheless thinks there are serious issues afoot.
I admit, I don't put much stock in this holiday, and observe it only because my family does and they want to include me. I sometimes, therefore, feel sheepish when someone says 'Merry Christmas' to me, and usually issue a quick 'you too' in reply. But I have never felt that anybody was trying to impose on me. If you have, don't. It's a victim mentality.
Bottom line: just say whatever you want. If you're observing your religious holiday, go ahead and MC me. Or, if you have other beliefs, say Happy Hannukah/Kwanzaa/holidays or whatever else you've got. [Does anybody actually know someone who celebrates Kwanzaa? I don't.] It doesn't bother me, and it shouldn't bother anyone else.
On that note, I'd like to offer greetings and good wishes to all on the occasion of the Winter Solstice.
