I, too, think it is silly that this is even a debate. Wether religious or not, the holiday on December 25th is still Christmas. I think Merry Christmas is appropriate at all times. The media just likes to make a big deal out of nothing!

Well this time of year everyone is celebrating something and not just Xmas, so I think it is very appropriate to say Happy Holidays. Everyone do not celebrate Xmas, so it is not polite to tell them Marry Xmas.  :peace:

 :sad1: I have really thought about this question and I must admit I am very proud to the beliefs I have towards this time of year. I am an advid believer in wishing others a MERRY CHRISTMAS. After all, this great country was founded on freedom to worship God. This season is celebrated because of the birth of Christ. Government and big business' are forgetting that. We are constantly bomb-barded to conform . Take prayer out of schools; remove "IN GOD WE TRUST" from our money.  But if you are more comfortable in saying HAPPY HOLIDAYS then more power to you. I am not here to judge you, only to love you and to except you as you are. So, in ending my opinion; I want to say that I am wishing each and everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a safe and extremely BLESSED NEW YEAR!!!!! :peace: :wave:

Either way is fine with me.  I don't judge other people so whatever they want to say is not offensive to me.

I think it's silly for this to be an issue. I say it both ways just depends on the day and what comes out of my mouth lol. I honestly don't see how saying Merry Christmas could offend someone  :dontknow:

I use Merry Christmas with friends and family that I know won't be upset.  But I might say happy holidays to coworkers or neighbors I don't know very well. I try to be respectful of others beliefs and traditions. Happy Holidays to all.

I reply Merry Christmas.  Did you know that Christmas started as a pagan holiday of Yule and the Catholic Church planned the celebration of Christ's birth to coincide with the dates of the pagan holiday around winter solstice in order to diminish the pagan celebration.  We still have yule logs and other traditions based on the original pagan holiday though.

I always say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to ppl. I don't see what the big deal is, but I think saying both phrases together keeps in mind of all religious backgrounds and it does sound a little bit sweeter of the tongue.  :P

 :peace:  &   :heart:

I say Merry Christmas because that is what I celebrate.  But why is a friendly greeting offensive anyway?  People are too sensitive.
