    Generally over the "holiday season" you get at least 3 public holidays (state depending). Seems easier to me to say happy holidays (several days) than merry Christmas (one day).

    Relax and have a home brew, the intentions were good.

    all this hoo ha about religion. Christmas is all about stopping the kids from breaking shit or burning down the house, between laps with the lawn mower because the grass is growing like a foot a week. Trying to keep the keezer full is near impossible because of the constant mowing, and it's hot. Which invariably means a trip to the pool or beach, if you do survive the sharks and box jelly fish, there's the hour long ride home with 2 kids in the back picking at each other. So again you get home needing another beer or 7. Then there all the honeydos, including the ones you didn't do at whilst away at swap, each requiring at least 3 trips to the hardware, which on any normal day would be fine, but there are crazys everywhere, there can't navigate a car park on foot let alone in a car, then they go into the shops and drive their trolleys like kamakazie. Once in the hardware you better know what your after and where it's located , or bring a packed lunch. Shops in general at this time of year are a complete nightmare, so if you do make it home alive or you were granted bail, you'll need another beer .... or 7. Then you have all those "mates" .... 'just thought I'd drop by for a beer and say merry Xmas'

    It's a bloody conspiracy to empty my keezer is what it is!

    If your culture is completely reliant on strangers on the internet from the US greeting you using your preferred use of words, it may already be gone.

    if our culture is getting uppity about whether someone says christmas or holidays when essentially wishing me good luck for [December 23 to January 1 period] then colour me un-australian

    Yes there is separation of church and state, but the state and the people under it are still overwhelmingly imbued with Christian values, regardless of whether people are religious or not. Christianity colours our laws and social conduct and, for the great number of Australians of European heritage, almost their every thought even though they are completely unaware of it. It is deeply rooted and persists as the foundation of our culture whether we like it or not. It is the basis of our social indoctrination and its everywhere.

    You say the commandments against adultery and idols are not law. But it was only in the 1970s when no-fault divorce came in that adultery ceased to be a outright crime. And adultery can still be brought up in evidence in modern day Family Court disputes. As for idols and the like, try marching down Bourke Street waving an ISIS flag or a swastika and tell me the police won't get involved.

    Soldiers take an oath of loyalty to the Queen who is formally Supreme Governor of the Church of England. The separation of church and state does not give a soldier the secular right to refuse to defend the Queen's titular rights and must be prepared fight to defend them as ordered.

    Nah. He's a practical joker and a sadist who made us to amuse himself. Remember he put dinosaur bones in the ground to test our faith since we were all created 6000 years ago etc.

    According to my weird neighbour, the Pope's Auntie is Christ. Which is odd
