Isn't Christmas a holiday?

I just don't get it. Oops, I think it is my gen-x-ness showing through again.

There are an awful lot of people growing concerned, even irate over the replacement of "Christmas" with "Holiday" in a lot of public and corporate settings. There are even groups "organizing" not to shop at stores that call the time of year "Holidays" instead of Christmas.

O, that life were so good I had nothing better to deal with than whether WalMart and Target called the season "Holiday" or "Christmas."

ISTM (which is online lingo for "It Seems To Me") that Christians ought to be more concerned about other things than what some corporation chooses to call the time of year. Or are we really so simple minded that, like Steve Taylor sung 2 decades ago, "We'll only drink milk from Christian cows"?

Should not we be more concerned, say, not to give any financial support to corporations that pay their CEO's more than 300 times what the lowest ranking employees make?
