In 2016, the Obamas released their final White House Christmas card. It did not once mention the word “Christmas.” The card read “Happy Holidays” with a message about the new year. There is an accompanying photo of Obama and his family. The card was also signed by the Obama dogs Bo and Sunny.On the other hand, the Trump’s Christmas card begins by saying “Merry Christmas,” along with a “Happy New Year.”

A reaction to identity politics.
mell saysA reaction to identity politics.Nope--saying Happy Holidays is the opposite of identity politics. It's treating everyone equally, no matter their religion.Forcing one to say Merry Christmas IS identity politics.
You got that backwards. Everybody was saying whatever they wanted before the left started making a big fuss about it w/ their identity politics.

Everybody was saying whatever they wanted before the left started making a big fuss about it w/ their identity politics.You mean people realized that that not everyone is Christian and decided to be polite by wishing Happy Holidays? Please explain how being inclusive and not honoring only one religion is identity politics. I'm all ears.
What concerns me is the signature of a 11 year old on that card. What's up with that?
Forcing people to change their speech is identity politics and oppressive. Inclusion has nothing to do with preemptive obedience in fear of hurting muh feelings.

Liberals are always the consummate Grinch stewing over consumerism.
Christmas has been dying for decades, which is why you start seeing Christmas imagery before Halloween.
Yeah it's a nice change. BTW his campaign also sent out cards last Christmas... I got one. I thought that was nice as well.
Jesus was born to command the whole world to eat the poor and minimize taxes.
The root of my objection to the insipid "Happy Holidays" non-greeting is the clear demand that America change beyond recognition to accommodate new minorities, rather than demanding that immigrants change to accommodate America, as used to be our ideal, which we called the melting pot.
So in your opinion, the US as a melting pot with one of its core principles being freedom of religion, should force people to celebrate a Christian holiday?
the majority should not be subject to the tyranny of the minority.
Just like in politics, the majority wins
