Why don't offices have Christmas parties, when the holiday on the calendars I have all say we are celebrating Christmas?

Is it too politically incorrect to say what the holiday is?

Is it too politically correct for an office filled with people of many religions to celebrate during December and NOT make it a religious based celebration?

Companies don't want to create issues for their non-Christian employees nor make them feel unwelcome to celebrate the PAGAN holiday together with their workmates.

As for the Holiday Hams, I bet they are selling.

Why would anyone insist on having their own religion celebrated by others? Is it not enough for you to have a personal relationship (or lack thereof) with the diety of your choice? Do you need a grocery store to remind you that Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat? Do you need your company to assist you in prayer?
