Oh, and one more thing...

I'm driving to work this morning, and the Chevy dealership right by the station has this big animated "look at me instead of the road, so that when you wreck your car and need a replacement, we're right here" sign, and what does it say? "Merry Christmas?" No, it says, "Happy Birthday, Jesus."

I try not to be judgmental about people's religion, but this is a bit much, I think. Not offensive so much as just flip and tasteless. It's almost as bad as that fish symbol some businesses feel a need to throw into the corner of all their advertising, like "Hey, buy from us because a portion of every dollar you spend with us goes STRAIGHT TO GOD. It's like you're buying from GOD HIMSELF!"
