"I can really go for her being my partner," Dadayan said during the Glendale Easter Seals Christmas party. Wright, however, was too pooped to boogie and politely declined Dadayan's invitation. "This is the second party I've been to already," she said. Dadayan did not seem to mind at all, as his head continued to bob to the rhythm of the music.

I wanted to say "Happy Holidays" to a guy the other day, but he had just told me that he was scheduled to work through Christmas. I suddenly realized that the word, "holiday" might make him feel bad, being that his was less than a happy one this year, what with work and all. So I smiled and said nothing. It was a safe encounter. He was not offended and I was politically, religiously, seasonally correct. There was a brief temptation on my part to mutter something neutral, like maybe, "Happy Winter" or safer yet, "Merry Whatever," but he just might be a depressed person and those words could hurt, too. Best to be silent, I thought.

Commentator Bill O'Reilly is on a campaign to promote the use of the holiday greeting "Merry Christmas" in retail stores, reflecting a concern that outlets are replacing the greeting with non-denominational sayings such as "Happy Holidays." Do you think secular forces are wiping out such seasonal displays? Are you offended by the lack of the word "Christmas" in such displays and advertising? Corporate America and the "secular forces" are doing a great job of removing Christ from Christmas, but it's not because of a reference to a generic holiday.
