So like the Points Yet Unrelated article, I am also somewhat annoyed by the so called "politically correct" crowd. It seems to me like we need some way to drive the point into their heads that avoiding references to religion isn't going to offend fewer people. I propose the following solution: We create a new religion and name a holiday after all of their "euphemisms". Have someone calling your Christmas tree a Holiday tree? make a holiday called "Holiday", then claim you're being offended by the reference to someone else's religion. Someone called your Hannukah celebration "Winter season festivities"? Get offended that they're referring to the wrong religion. See the pattern yet? Go apply it. I will suggest we name the religion "Statutory", to cover all of those days as well.
