What bothers me about that comment is not that you wouldn't buy it, but that you would actually be "offended" because some people actually still cling to the religious roots of the holiday and you don't... I mean, I just don't honestly get how it could "offend" someone, even if only "slightly."
Ok, fine, to keep this on topic... got two of each while ordering my 16 minifigs, and they're both fantastic (although my wife is taken aback by naked Santa, I think it's funny). Opened one of each now because I'm an impatient bantha, and will open the other two with the kids at Christmas time to add to our LEGO Christmas Village (with toy shop, trains, some other older advent stuff, and soon to be with bakery).
Edit: except for the Wizards "wand." That's just terrible. I'm happy I just received a package from BrickForge including a variety of colors of both the sorcerer staff and the wizard staff.
