What do you say when someone wishes you a Merry Christmas?

When you're out and about in this season, folks are likely to wish you a Merry Christmas. How do you respond?

Hey, Merry Christmas!

Bah! HUMBUG!

That's an option, but being rude doesn't really help anyone.

Hey, Merry Christmas!

Thank you. I'm a Christian but I don't celebrate that.

Huh? Why Not?

When I became a Christian I learned that my God doesn't like idolatry. When I began to really care about that, I studied the history of Christmas and the traditions and I learned that it's really all about idolatry. So I quit celebrating that - and I'm really glad I did!
