holiday discrimination

Have you ever noticed that every holiday can have its moment in the sun, except for Christmas? I say this because I just checked out the peeps website. Why is the Christmas peep known just as "holiday?" That is the biggest load of BS I have ever heard! Easter, Valentine's Day, and Halloween are all allowed their proper names. But Christmas is simply called "holiday." Are they not all freaking holidays? What is Peeps so afraid of? Are they Christmas haters? Do they not believe in Jesus or Santa Clause? Is Christmas "the one of whom we do not speak" or something? The least they could do is call it "winter" or "season of joy" or something equally puke-inducing, yet descriptive. Sigh. I'm so sick of political correctness! I realize the point of being politically correct is not to offend any one, but did anybody ever consider that people might be offended by completely ignoring something that is important to them?
