Liberty Counsel has filed an EEOC complaint on behalf of a woman in Florida
who was instructed to answer the phone at her job by saying "happy holidays"
but objected because her religion prevented her from contributing to the
secularization of Christmas. She insisted that they accommodate her by
allowing her to answer the phone by saying "Merry Christmas." She was
ultimately fired over it. See the press release here:

A legitimate case of legally required religious accommodation?
