western (gregorian) christmas confuses me.
western christmas it is the most popular religious holiday in my perception.
it makes me nervous that if i say merry christmas then i have to congratulate on all other religious holidays all the time.
there must be at least dozen major religious holidays celebrated by people i know.
serbian orthodox ones annoy me enough, but i also have to pay attention to these western ones due to media pressure.
then there are muslim and jewish ones and i do not even want to think about asian religions…
its a mess.
however i did congratulate people for western christmas much more than any other holiday.
