I think the Muslim family whose son I tutor will beat me to it. When dropped by their apartment last night, the mother was wrapping Christmas presents.

Muslims recognise Jesus as a Prophet, and honour His birth.

The Muslims I have known celebrate Christmas; they consider Jesus a great prophet, and do have at least a semblance of reverence for the BVM.

well I wouldn't have thought it funny if this particular one hadn't given me a very stern stink eye in response. After the fact, I lol'd... and it made me happy. :-P

Perhaps you got a stern look because he knows that we're barely into the FIRST WEEK OF ADVENT, and Christmas wishes are, accordingly, ridiculous and incendiary.

Nah, that's not so bad. Try wishing your Jewish boss Merry Christmas because you forgot for a split second that he's still waiting for the Messiah. Now there was a stink eye. I hid from him for a week later.
