    Happy Chanukah! As posted on your FB:

      Re: Happy Hanukkah!!

      My introduction to Hanukkah came when my neighbor, Marty Starr, invited me to a party. When the festivities were over, the guests each got a gift on the way out. I thought this was pretty cool and volunteered to come back for the remaining nights. And even though it is not one of the major Jewish holidays, wishing our Jewish friends and colleagues a Happy Hanukkah is a well intentioned effort at ecumenism. And so, Happy Hanukkah to one and all, may the blessings of the holiday be upon you.

        I knew one, exactly one, Jewish person before I hit college. Yes I went to a rather strict Roman Catholic K-8, but also went to a public HS (where I met the Jewish person). I learned quite a bit from him (more than from schools), and I am thankful. I have also learned even more from my Jewish friends from this board. Odd? Probably. End result? Doesn't matter. The nature of goodwill knows no religion.

        Peace and goodwill to all. 'Tis the season.

                  I'm Jewish, but I go out of my way to tell my non-Jewish friends "Merry Christmas" not "Happy Holidays."

                  Happy Holidays is simply a way to assuage Christian guilt about how annoying and omnipresent Christmas marketing has become. Either that, or a way by the religious zealots to force more Christianity down everyone's throats by throwing a bone to the non-Christians.

                    Why share with us your prejudices and bigotry and crack pot theories in a thread dedicated simply to wishing folks a Happy Hannukah?

                      Don't you think that by the use of the term "Christmas" you are stating that the essential difference between Christianity and Judiasm is correct? I guess that you also don't believe that Cornell plays boring hockey. Happy Hannukah anyway. (In case you don't know it, I am also Jewish.)

                        1) I knew you were Jewish, Ralph.

                        2) By using the term Christmas, I'm acknowledging the importance of their holiday in their lives. Nothing more than that.

                        3) I find many Christians object to "Happy Holidays" as much as I do, though for different reasons, of course.

                          I have nothing against Christians regarding their Holidays as important to them, and I wish them all the best in their celebrations (so long as it doesn't belittle others). I also will admit that I have wished Christians Merry Christmas, and that it was a standing joke before I retired that most Christians were careful to call the party held in the office at this time of the year a Holiday party while I often called it a Christmas party. Nevertheless, I see nothing wrong with wishing people Happy Holidays. I don't think that it is an objectionable term.

                            Anyone "offended" by being wished a Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah is a schmuck. The massive increase in the use of the phrase "happy holidays" is the result of schmucks and their intolerance. Nothwithstanding Carol Moseley Braun's assertion, there is no right "not to be offended."

                              I think all of the phrases are acceptable. If people get offended by me wishing them well then too bad for them. When people say "Merry Christmas" to me I say "Happy Hanukkah" to them
