    Default Do you say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays"?

    Someone from my work HR suggested that we use "Happy Holidays" with our clients instead of "Merry Christmas" as "not to offend or be insensitive".

    Since when does saying "Merry Christmas" offend people?

    Are you slowly turning to the "Holidays" greeting or do you still say "Merry Christmas" to people. Are we being silly now?

    Oh...btw... MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!

    I don't celebrate Christmas but I do wish other people Merry X'mas. I don't get offended if someone wishes me that.

    I usually say "Merry Christmas" "Happy Hanukkah" "Happy Holidays" "Seasons Greetings". I don't get offended at all. Different people celebrate different things. It is supposed to be a happy time of year so I like to spread cheer!!

    I usually say Merry Christmas, but I say Happy Holidays too. I prefer to say Merry Christmas, but I know a lot of people don't celebrate Christmas or they celebrate another holiday, so I try to please everyone.

    It depends on the person I'm addressing it to. If I know that they celebrate Christmas, then I will wish them a Merry Christmas. I'm sure that there are some people that may be offended if they are wished a Merry Christmas if they do not celebrate that holiday. But for the most part though, it seems like people who do not celebrate this particular holiday mind all that much. I work with several people who do not celebrate Christmas and they wish people a Merry Christmas all the time. LOL! So I'm sure if the gesture was directed toward them, they wouldn't mind. It is the spirit behind saying it and not necessarily the literal meaning of it.
    Anyway, I guess to answer the question, I think your place of employment is just trying to include everyone. It's a sensitivity to diversity thing, which isn't a bad thing.

    I say Happy Holidays to people that I do not know that well and not sure if they celebrate the Christmas holiday -- I saw Merry Christmas to those people who I know DO celebrate the Christmas holiday --

    Default Re: Do you say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays"?

    I usually do both, depending on who I am talking to. When I wrote thank-yous to my students for the gifts they got me, I said Happy Holidays. I was afraid of offending someone, but with close friends and family, it is always Merry Christmas! Even with my co-workers, it was Merry Christmas! The reason I do the Happy Holidays with my students is that a few years ago I had a student whose parents didn't celebrate and got a little upset when I wished their student a Merry Christmas! Sad, but true. I just would rather avoid the hassle.
