    Don't mind you having an opinion on Donald or Hillary - the use of **** rather than giving a reason for not liking her is well a bit cheesy... perhaps even cringe worthy.

    I have had seasons greetings from ex business associates, Chinese, (atheist) Indian (both Hindu and Sikh) non from Indonesian Muslim's who I have done business with in the past, though that could have been because of the pigskin shoes I sold them, how was I to know Halal went as far as shoes!

    What's wrong with a hoppy new beer?

    I'm offended that you are projecting emotional states on to me.

    He’s pointing out that youve become offended about not offending people.

    Rather ironic, wouldn’t you say?

    Question in need of answer. How does this “happy holiday” work if you are not having holidays? Eg retired, unemployed, having to work through etc.

    So “happy/merry to what ever you fancy at this time of the year everyone”

    Religion and politics are two things I hate talking about! Here we have them both in the one....

    I’m the least religious person I know. Having said that, we still celebrate Christmas and Easter, I still wish people a merry Christmas and happy Easter and also tell them I hope they have a great holiday period/season etc. I can see both sides of the petty argument but don’t understand why so many of you are getting worked up by it all.

    Over this holiday period I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year, stay safe on the road, watch the waves if you’re rock fishing and be fucking kind to each other. Have a beer, have a mead, have another shrimp on the barbie.

    Yeah, it does get massively overplayed. I have friends from all cultures and walks of life and I don't know any one that would get pissed about being wished happy whatever-religious-festival-of-the-day. Just as I wouldn't get upset if I was wished happy Diwali or Eid.

    I think the people who insist on being PC at all costs and the people who get pissed off at people being PC secretly want to have each other's babies.

    I didn't get an email - not sure whether to be sad, offended or happy - so confusing. Oh well ...
