What's wrong with 'merry Christmas'?

Recently I enjoyed a serendipity when I discovered that the U.S. Postal Service has not been intimidated by those who demand that the word "Christmas" not be used publicly during the Christmas season lest someone be "offended." They are offering attractive stamps featuring the Madonna and Child, and the word "Christmas."

You know, it is really all right to wish a fellow Christian a merry Christmas, a Jewish friend a happy Hanukkah or a Muslim friend a blessed Ramadan. Also, it is OK to greet nonbelievers who enjoy a secular Christmas with a "merry Christmas" wish. I really don't see how anyone could be offended by such greetings, unless he or she simply becomes offended whenever they can't have their way.
