Is Christmas disappearing?

Walmart greeter's, at least where I live, have to say Happy Holidays. Saying Merry Christmas could get them fired. Everywhere you look people are taking away Merry Christmas and saying Happy Holidays. I even saw wrapping paper that had printed on it: Joy, Merry, Happy Holidays, but Christmas was not mentioned. We still have have the presents, candy, and lights. But what are we celebrating. Has everyone forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. Jesus. We have to avoid "offending" anyone. No not really. Christmas is just that, its about Jesus. That is why it is celebrated. And if u dont like it, though. There are plenty of other holidays. Enjoy them. But leave Christmas alone.

I am not a religious person but I would boycott any company that would try and change Christmas, because the people they are trying to please with this are not willing to give up anything or meet half way so why are we trying so hard to please them. The tradition of Christmas is so important and any company that is trying change it deserves to go down. Merry Christmas to everyone.

I have found that about half of the people I talk to in stores will say Happy Holidays and half will say Merry Christmas. I was in Wal-mart yesterday, and the cashier said Merry Christmas. I always say Merry Christmas.
