Happy Holidays Or Merry Christmas?
I kind of have a hard time believing there is outrage over people saying “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas”. I’d like to think I’m in the middle of the road when it comes to most things, but the fact that this is even a debate is kind of ridiculous.

If people are going to get offended by you saying “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” or “Happy Kwanzaa” or “Merry Arbor Day”, they are going to be offended by anything. You’d be an idiot to let them have any pull on your life. According to politicsdaily.com
Just under half (49 percent) of those surveyed in a new poll said stores should have a “Merry Christmas” greeting policy, while 44 percent say businesses should opt for the more generic “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” out of respect for people of different faiths.
My take is, Who cares? Be grateful somebody has you in their thoughts. And maybe somebody really wants you to have Happy Holidays. Christmas isn’t the only one. But at the same time, just because you don’t get down with Jesus’ birth, it doesn’t mean you can stop the awesomeness of Christmas. Ask yourself, Who am I to be telling somebody else what to say? There are plenty of options here in America, and you’re free to do as you wish. If you want to scream “Merry Christmas” from the mountain tops do it, but don’t be offended when somebody else is yelling “Happy Holidays”.
