And it’s NOT about “not offending anyone” - it’s about secularizing society.

I agree.

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.
