yeah i get the same thing. minus the emails i guess but i still see stuff spilling all over facebook from the same posse of usual suspects who literally do not know how to think.
i have friend who i used to go to church with that's a christmas knight who makes it his personal mission to spend christmas cheer whether you like it or not, and whenever he's at a store and someone says "happy holidays" he pauses, looks them in the eye, says "...merry christmas." and leaves.
I have a family member who is very similar. If we are out shopping and someone says Happy Holidays, she is quick to say Merry Christmas with a tude. The worst is when someone does say Merry Christmas, because then a conversation ensues about how wonderful it is that they are saying, Merry Christmas and how terrible people are for saying Happy Holidays. From talking to these people they'd lead you to think the world is falling apart, simply because people are trying to be respectful and thoughtful of all people not just one subset of the human race.
