Do You Say ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘Happy Holidays?’ [POLL]
Whenever this time of year rolls around, I find myself stuck in a tug-of-war of political correctness. Should I wish people “Merry Christmas,” or “Happy Holidays?” Even after so many years, I honestly haven’t settled on one over the other!
Even as someone who celebrates Christmas, I don’t really mind when others wish me “Happy Holidays;” but I have to wonder, what if it was the other way around? What if I didn’t celebrate Christmas? Would I mind if people wished me a merry Christmas? I’m really not sure. I might be a little offended, but I think I would still appreciate the sentiment.
It seems to me like most retail companies prefer “Happy Holidays,” and I get that. They don’t want to alienate any of their customers.
But is it really that big of a deal to begin with? Can’t we all just get along, especially this time of year?
Where do you stand?
