What do you do?
I also don't use religious sentiments, especially bible verses! I will put Merry Christmas on some of my cards, but not most. But my cards aren't religious either. Christmas is a very secular holiday - or can be.
I also celebrate St. Pat's Day but only because I'm Irish.
I have a few Jewish friends and they get Christmas cards (and send some!) but will get the "Season's Greetings" or "Peace on Earth."
I have been told that the Stampin' Up set, Thoughts and Prayers, has a different name and NONE of the "praying" stamps in the set in the UK version.
My closest Jewish friend always sends me St. Pat's cards, too. And another Jewish friend, when we lived in Florida, would wear his Kelly green yarmulke to my St. Pat's parties. He was not orthodox and rarely went to temple, but he found that thing and loved it.
So I guess my friends and I simply aren't the seriously religious types - or not at all. (Me=not at all)
