So, I'm in the breakroom today and a co-worker says to me, that it's a shame that we get more time off at Thanksgiving than xmas.  We should be celebrating "the birth".  She asked me if I agreed.  I said that I didn't share her feelings on that and to have a nice Thanksgiving.

@ Dr. Cowboy - Ohhhhh I so wanted to go there, but I was at work so I had to remain cool.  I like xmas trees and presents too.  For me that day is just a gift exchange for family, friends, and another reason to eat!

You're so much nicer than me, I probably would have reminded her that had Jesus actually existed he almost certainly wasn't born on Dec 25th and that Christmas is actually a pagan festival (Yule) that was usurped by the Catholic Church centuries ago in an effort to facilitate the conversion of pagans to Christianity, but that's just me ;) I like Xmas trees and presents anyway.

@zeeman barzell - HA!  You can have my share of green bean casserole...yuck!  But please pass the cranberry sauce! :)

@Prog Rock Girl - I agree, so annoying ugh!  Usually I bite my tongue, but today I was feelin' kinda spicy.

I was always annoyed at the assumption that everyone in the workplace is Christian too. They're the only ones who can take it for granted that way.

Thanks!  It really was awkward,  but I am actually glad that it happened.

That sounds like a great response.
