It is "CHRISTMAS" time so why not say Merry Christmas?

I agree with Stan. If it's Christmas say Merry Christmas. When it's Kwanzaa say Happy Kwanzza. When its Hanakkah say Happy Hanakkah.

I wish different salutations depending on the person's religious/spiritual view. One cannot assume that everyone is a Christian at this time of the year.

Last time I checked December 25th is Christmas.

Would you call Thanksgiving anything other than Thanksgiving?

SAY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I always thought that "Happy Holidays" was intended to encompass New Year's as well as Christmas. It wasn't until Bill O'Reilly started this war on Christmas nonsense a few years ago that people started interpreting "Happy Holidays" as anti-Christian. Any blessings or good wishes should be accepted with gratitude. That is the spirit of the season.

Speaking as a non-Christian(Buddhist) who celebrates like Dionysis during the season I am fairly quick with a "Merry Christmas!" I am not offended by the proclaimation anymore then I would have been centuries ago when it was called "Saturnalia","Solstice", or "Yule". Call it what you want but 'Happy Holidays' sounds a bit generic and phony. Refer to each holiday seperately if you must. The Politically correct dogmas of our time have crippled our humanity and deluted the meaning of EACH holiday. We don't have to celebrate each holiday to treat it with reverence. So I say to you all Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanza, Happy Chanukha, Happy New Year! May this season do what it has always done: Open up closed hearts, awaken our spirit of benevolence and foster appreciation for our beloved family and friends.

Due to the fact that we live in America, and in this great country of our there are many different religons. I feel we need to take other peoples faith into account and approach this issue with a simple "Happy Holidays."

Should I be offended if a jewish person says Happy Chanuka?

We ( Christians ) should say Merry Christmas ( or Feliz Navidad, or Crăciun Fericit, or the myriad other ways of celebrating the birth of Christ ) because that is what WE are celebrating, and we are the ones doing the salutations. Do away with this political correctness. You could also wish the person Happy Hannukah, or Gong xi fa chai for Chinese New Year.

If a person of another faith expressed hopes that I would enjoy their holiday, I would be pleased and view it as an opportunity to learn more about their culture.

And if we all learned a little more about each other, would that be a bad thing?

Merry Christmas.
