Well a long, protracted, often ridiculous comments section on my post “What’s so wrong with saying “Happy Holidays”? actually bore fruit.
Sometimes it takes a little frustration to get the creative juices flowing. Thanks to an awful, improbable hypothetical argument put forward by a commenter, I was able to come up with a much more realistic analogy about the whole “Happy Holidays” war on Christmas nonsense.
An office plans a monthly birthday party to acknowledge all of the birthdays of the month.
The cake says “Happy birthdays”.
Everyone feels included. They eat cake and enjoy each other.
Except for the ONE pathetic white guy in the corner whose dad owns the company. He sits there, grumbling, “MY birthday is more important than all of these OTHER people’s birthdays. MINE MINE MINE!”
He stomps his foot and has a mantrum.
