Do you wish people a Merry Christmas or a Happy Holiday?
My wife and I were having this discussion over the weekend. It seems that we have been built to say Happy Holidays over the years instead of Merry Christmas. I understand that we live in a free country and I think it is great that you can celebrate whatever holiday you enjoy celebrating, but are you offended over someone wishing you a Merry Christmas? I have started to wish people a Merry Christmas more this season and it seems like many people are surprised to hear it. Most have replied thank you and Merry Christmas as well. One older gentlemen overheard us wishing someone a Merry Christmas and went out of his way to wish us one as well. He went on to thank us for saying Merry Christmas and explained that he wished he heard those words a little more nowadays as opposed to the generic Happy Holidays.
How do you wish people well during this time of year? Are you offended if someone wishes you a Merry Christmas as opposed to a Happy Holidays?
