It’s the festive season and with it comes the debate over “Merry Christmas” versus “Happy Holidays.”
In the U.S., a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey revealed 72 percent of adults prefer “Merry Christmas” on signs greeting them with a seasonal message. Only 22 percent wanted “Happy Holidays.”
Are you offended by phrases such as Seasons’ Greetings or Happy Holidays?
Do you say Merry Christmas? If so, why? If not, why not?
Is the whole greeting thing played out of proportion?
