typically i say "merry christmas," unless i know the person does not celebrate christmas (then i say happy holidays). also, i have a christmas tree in my store, not a holiday tree. i have all types of people come into my store from all different religions and back grounds, usually they tell ME "merry christmas" before i even get to say anything to them. people around me are typically very friendly and tolerant of eachother (yes, there are some friendly areas in NJ). saying "merry christmas" to a non-christian, or "happy hanukkah" to a non-jewish person is never greeted with hostility or a lecture. usually you get a "thank you. same to you," and a smile in return. this is how i (and many people i know see it)... just because i am not jewish, does that mean that i shouldn't have a happy hanukka? it is not like i fall off the face of the earth for 8 days. should a jewish or muslim person not have a merry christmas? several of the sales reps that visit my business are jewish, some of them actually celebrate christmas. they don't celebrate the birth of jesus and all of the religious crap, but they do put up lights and a tree, and they usually have dinner with family too.

Being in sales and with all different religions, Happy Holidays is the safe way of wishing the spirit to people. With all my friends though, it is Merry Christmas.

yeah i agree that its a safe way to go when you are dealing with all sorts of different, with as in your case, sales. But what i really don't get is how blown up it becomes because 1 person out of a thousand can cry and yell so much cause the town tree says Merry Christmas instead of happy holidays.

It reminds me of how extreme people are willing to go, just to cry and yell cause everything now days have to be politically correct. Some times i wish we were in the time from when Disney released "Dumbo". Can you imagine people today if that film were to just come out? I read an article not too long ago about an athiest that was screaming and yelling about his son saying the Pledge of Allegiance because of the "One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all" and how he vowed to take his son out of school. It made me want to ask him if he was going to never tuch a dollar, or spend money again because it has "In God We Trust" on it.

I digress, there are just some people out there that will try their hardest to be the squeaky wheel, and it really makes times like this saddening really, cause instead of enjoying the Christmas spirit, and Santa and all that, most have turned into Bah Humbugs just to get a rise out of people because now days, anyone can cry foul, and have things changed just because they can. Christmas has really changed since i was a kid, and I'm not even 30 yet.

Merry Christmas y'all

It's Merry Christmas in our family too even though we are atheist. Without this holiday this cold winter would be very bleak. Merry Christmas all and Happy New Year! Drink and be Merry.

i like to say "Happy Christmahanaquanzika"
the old folks who come in early in the morning when i work seem to get a kick out of it.

If it was ok to say Merry Christmas 15+ years ago without getting sued, you should be able to say it today.

Holiday stems from 'holy days' so it all works out in the end.
