    Default Wiki re: Christmas controversies (war on Xmas)

    Fwiw, here's the wiki re: Christmas controversies (perhaps a politically correct title for the history of the politically correct war on Christmas):

    Here's an old post of mine from the wiki: political correctness thread in this forum:

    Last week I saw that so-called Hot Cross buns at my local supermarket (Metro) are now being made and sold without any (pastry) cross on top of each. It may be a bit of a war on Easter (or politically correct excuse to attempt to make more profits, by trying to sell buns to more people, of other religions) has begun, like the war on Christmas, by many retailers (i.e. no Merry Christmas greetings etc., just 'Happy Holidays'). Knowing that this country was founded on Judaeo-Christian principles and by people who obeyed such, I was rather annoyed, anyway.

    Fwiw, on the weekend I was at my local mall's grocery store. The music they were playing included the words: 'We wish you the merriest New Year'. Nothing about the word Christmas in that holiday jingle.
