Benefit of the Doubt

Recently, however, I’ve changed my mind about “Merry Christmas.” I no longer see it as insensitive, and I don’t mind when people say it. I certainly don’t rally for people to change their ways.

Unless We’re Friends

That being said, that’s how I feel about strangers saying “Merry Christmas.” If you and I are friends, after a while, I’d expect you to know I don’t celebrate Christmas. At that point, saying “Merry Christmas” is kind of obnoxious.
