I always say Merry Christmas

Everyone should be able to name the holiday according to what it means to them. on Nov 30, 2015 @ 05:21 pm

I am genuinely not offended about being wished a Happy Chanukah or Happy Holidays which is why I don't think anyone should be offended if I wish them a Merry Christmas. Many faiths have significant/holy days around this time of year, and then there are those who just enjoy the tradition with Santa and reindeer.

What all of these greetings have in common is imparting a blessing of some kind. It's never meant as a negative greeting, so honestly I don't understand what the fuss is all about. I know that governments and businesses are trying very hard to be inclusive in their language and that's why most places use the generic "happy holidays" now, but for me personally it will always be a Merry Christmas.

To have family and friends it's always merry Christmas, but when I worked in an office and at the cinema it was happy holidays or seasons greetings.
