7 thoughts on “Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?”

  1. I agree with you Brandy. We are getting to be a TOO politically correct society. It is one thing to be a bigot and intolerant. It’s another to be TOO correct. I say we say HAPPY “whatever holiday it is” and be done with it.

    Of course, if someone were to say Happy Holidays, I would not be offended, just as long as they didn’t FORCE me to be politically correct as well. THe one thing that is truly Merry for me is Chrsits birthday, or whatever holiday you may be celebrating. I am a home health RN. I deal with diversity on a daily basis.


  2. I grew up saying Merry Christmas and that’s what I say now. Of course, I don’t look someone who is obviously Jewish in the face and wish them a Merry Christmas, that’s when I would use Happy Holidays. It doesn’t bother me either way. A greeting is a greeting 🙂

  3. Everything is so “politically” driven these days. When were younger no one would think twice about it. We said the Pledge every morning at school. We said One Nation under God. I also understand that different people celebrate different holidays, I personally think that Merry Christmas is an acceptable greeting for the holiday season for me. I usually can’t tell if someone is Jewish. I usually don’t ask them. I think that to me the words Merry Christmas can be used as a greeting or a wish of a good holiday. I personally know what the words Merry Christmas mean to me as in Christ’s Birthday.

  4. I hope I don’t start a fight. I actually don’t love it when people say anything to me at this time of year. I’m Jewish. I feel like it’s easier to just say nothing than to bother/offend anyone.

    But the thing with the decorations is just weird. I obviously don’t care at all what people do in their own homes! If you want any X-Mas decorations in your house, there’s no reason they shouldn’t be readily available!
