i dont know if you hear about this kinda stuff where you people live but recently i noticed how people start using the word holidays/festive days instead of Christmas because of other religons that dont celebrate christmas. so now instead of people saying "Marry Christmas" they say "happy holidays" which pisses me off cause you know that people are celebrating Christmas yet they wont say Christmas. and this is basically all those stupid uptight people who get too concerned and offended about having to celebrate other people's holidays, and if you have a problem with that then you better just move back to your home country instead of whining about how its offensive to you that people celebrate christmas and stuff.
also i heard on the news about a choir in montreal singing a christmas carol and changing all the words of "Christmas" into festive which is so stupid cause if your going to sing a fucken christmas carol you should maybe use the actual lyrics.

anyways jsut give your opinion on this situation and whether you agree with the change or not

Sorry, duplicate. Use the search feature before posting a new topic please!

Edit: You live in Canada, last time I checked we didn't have a specific religion to believe in.

oh ooops my bad about the duplicate, the search is not that reliable and just gets random stuff so i dotn even use it, but Canada still is basically catholic and christian religon -_- just cause we are known for multicultralism doesnt mean we dont have a main religon, or else we wouldnt make christmas an official holiday in our country -_- although im pretty sure many other countries include christmas as a holiday as well, but thats also because either there country are catholics and christians or more and more citezens have become catholics or christains

if you arent celebrating christmas in japan then why do you even say happy holidays at all unless you have a different holiday or celebration during the Christmas time

It depends on who I'm talking to. But I usually say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Or sometimes the shorter version, Happy Holidays. Hehe.
