Do you like someone to say, "Happy holidays," or "Merry Christmas?" Why?
I like to hear "Merry Christmas" or prefixing any festival by name by the proper adjective. It gives me more satisfaction.
The modern festival is Christmas so it should be termed, Merry Christmas. Happy holidays is just a pathetic cow-towing to all those precious politically corect wimps
Merry Christmas.....why? Because Christmas is about Christ.
Merry Christmas is my favorite. it's part of my countries tradition and to me changing it , means changing my country.
Always Merry Christmas, and I'd like to make a friendly suggestion to everyone to visit this lost hub - http://theholestory.hubpages.com/hub/The-Word-Christmas It's worth the time.
I prefer Happy Holidays because it is more inclusive rather than exclusive. The spirit of the season is to be festive. Since there are many winter holidays, I prefer to include them all, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, Winter Solstice, any Muslim holidays, whatever anyone else celebrates, and the December birthdays!
being who not celebrating christmas, i still love christmas songs. if someone told me marry christmas, i have no problem with that, but myself, i try to say: happy holidays,
and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all of you.!!
The word holiday comes from the term HOLY DAY, and Christmas comes from the term CHRIST MASS, so either one would be appropriate. However, I prefer Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year. After all, it is Jesus Christ's Birthday we are celebrating. If we are grateful to God for the great gift He gave us, so we exchange gifts in honor of Gods great love and mercy. Even if Dec. 25th the actual date of the birth of our Savior, not knowing the correct date, it is appropriate to set aside a day to glorify God, and honor His Son for His sacrifice.isn't
I prefer Merry Christmas because that is the tradition I grew up with. If I don't know people well, I try to remember to say Happy Holidays just in case that particular person doesn't celebrate Christmas in the same way I do.
I will say Merry Christmas. Even though where I work told us not to do so. I actually just a couple of days ago wrote a hub about it.

Being a Catholic, Merry Christmas is how I greet everyone and how i want to be greeted. That's the holiday that I celebrate in December, Christmas.
Merry Christmas...I guess it just sounds more friendly, intimate. I feel like one would say, "Happy Holidays" to a coworker or... someone like the president. It feels uncomfortable.

Are you comfortable saying Merry Christmas or do you say Happy Holidays? Why? Do you know the...right thing to say to the right person? Do you think we have become too Politically Correct?

Just curious why you can't say Merry Christmas anymore? I have never got upset when someone said Happy Hanukkah. The way I see it, someone is just wishing good times based on whatever their background is. I think it's very nice. I'm sure I'll regret the onslaught of religious debates that will...
