   Just like everyone here so far, even though the "right" way now is to say Happy Holidays! I still say Merry Christmas  :present:

I always say happy holidays even were I work. I work in a supermarket and because you don't know if a person celebrates Christmas so Isay happy holidays instead.

Merry Christmas due to the fact we are celebrating the birth of Christ.  If it were New Year's I would say Happy New Year.  I agree there would be no Christmas holiday without Christ.   :present:  :angel11:

I try to say Happy Holidays so that I won't offend anyone but it's hard since I'm so used to saying Merry Christmas. So Happy Holidays to you all.

Happy Holidays is pretty much all inclusive so I most often use that term. HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all!
