12. One way to avoid getting into stupid arguments

over it is to just say, "whatever," and go on about your business. Just dismiss the whole thing for the nonsense that it is. Sure, they will likely try to continue it but shrug it off. A non-combative attitude of "you do your thing and I'll do mine" attitude, as your first amendment right.

They want a fight. I don't give it to them. I just act like the whole thing is silly and I really don't care to discuss it.

When I was a kid looking over the cards my parents received, I thought that Happy Holidays was just a short cut to include New Year. We got the HH cards from relatives as well as from businesses and acquaintances whose religion we didn't know. When I realized that it was a holiday season for Jews, and that some Xtians celebrate New Year but not Xmas , it just semed like the considerate phrase to use when not sure. Nothing in Xtianity makes rudeness a requirement for holiday celebrations.
