What's So 'Offensive' About Christmas

A reader (Joe Welsh of Haddonfield) placed a letter in the Courier-Post today that makes a lot of sense when it comes to the whole issue of Christmas in today's "politically correct" environment.
Here's part of what he had to say:
When people say "happy holidays," it seems logical and appropriate for Thanksgiving and New Year's celebrations, but what exactly are they celebrating on Christmas Day? Do they know or are they embarrassed and just trying not to make waves and to be politically correct?
I also wonder why songs for Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Santa are sung in public schools to the exclusion of traditional Christmas carols? Don't any Christians go to public schools? This movement begs the question: How long will the words "under God" remain in the Pledge of Allegiance, or "In God We Trust" stay on our money?
This not only attacks religion, it attacks the U.S. Constitution at its core. It should be noted that nowhere in the constitution is religion excluded and more than 85 percent of Americans are Christians of many, many denominations.
