Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Honestly, why is it so wrong to say Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings? By saying that, noone is "trying to take christmas away". For me, I will say to anyone "Merry Christmas" - I also might say "Happy Holidays".... I just dont understand why it is so wrong for corporations to say Happy Holidays. What does it really harm? People act like Christmas is being excluded from "Happy Holidays", I however dont see how that is exluding it at all. I guess I just dont understand it. "Keep it the way it is", like the pledge of alliegence, doesnt fly with me because simply put, Christmas wasnt the first holy day to be celebrated during this/that time of year.

I understand what youre saying. I myself am not offended by Happy Holidays rather than Merry Christmas. I think whichever comes to mind first is fine. Thanks for signing up:)
