And its NOT about not offending anyone - its about secularizing society.

And its NOT about not offending anyone - its about secularizing society. I agree. Uh, we are a secular society with a strong Christian tradition. In the public sphere, Christmas has been a secular gift day for a vast swath of the American public for decades now. I don't see how begrudging Mrs. Fields or your local mall for catching up is at all righteous or effective. Then again, my orthodox Christian background emphasizes a personal relationship with God and Jesus rather than public displays of righteousness and proselytizing, so this may just be a divide between our Christian traditions and outlook. This all just seems so silly.
