    “Only if you want to be respectful of other religious celebrations besides your own.”

    It’s interesting how Christmas is “pagan” and “a commercial holiday” on one hand, yet it is a “religious holiday” that is oppressing others when it serves a political purpose. If I’m in a country where most people celebrate Ramadan and someone wishes me a “Happy Ramadan,” guess what? I’m going to thank them and wish them the same.

    Isn’t that what normal people do in response to well wishers?

      You always thank a well wisher, but a person that tells you they wish you well on the grounds of worshipping a thing you don’t worship, you get to call them up on on it.

      Ultimately, whatever the date is, the reason is pagan. There is nothing wrong about that.

        If someone said “have a great day worshiping Allah” then, yes, I’ll object and clarify. But that’s never going to happen. Just as no one wishing you a “Merry Christmas” ever adds, “have a good day worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!”
