    Thank you! This whole “war on Christmas” is silly, and just promoted by people like Bill O’Reilly. There is no such thing. There are no “Christmas Nazi’s” taking away all your Christmas decorations. Plus, Christmas’ origins are Pagan, NOT Christian. So, it’s not really a Christian holiday.

    I strongly disagree with this article. I’m only 17, and I feel that I’m better knowledged in this area of discussion. I’m VERY conservative, and to take away MY right to say Merry Christmas, because it’s going to upset the minorities of this country? That’s not going to happen. If they can’t accept the fact, that they came to OUR country, where far beyond the majority is of a Christian faith, believing in Jesus Christ, they don’t have to celebrate it. It was their choice to come here. Wasn’t it? Christians are NOT going to take the back seat to this nonsense any longer. Bill O’Reilly feels the exact same way, and until America gets it’s act together, he WILL continue to promote the “war on Christmas”.
