If any of my customers feel they need to say something to me about it .........well I don't need them as a customer that bad.
Its not that I'm against anyone else I believe if they want to celebrate their way I will support their right to do it and I believe most think the same way.
Sorry for the rant but This whole Happy Holidays vs Merry Christmas is a load.

For me it's business and that's it. I would feel like it's a nice gesture if it was sent to me. I am not sure if some people would. Do I care what they think? You bet your a$$ I do. People spend a lot of money with us and I feel like if even 5-10 customers might look at it and have adverse feelings about it then I'm not going to do it. The people who would/could be offended by this have one thing in common with me and every customer I have....the same green money. I am in business to make money, it is a service industry, you have to keep customers happy. I could give two sh$ts about christmas myself, I always give out more than I receive and despite the old saying, it isn't better.

That being said I may do the seasons greetings thing this year.
