I say Merry Christmas purely out of habit, but I prefer Happy Holidays, doesn't bother me at all what someone else says.

Say both. I typically say 'happy holidays' at work, but sometimes I'll say them both at work (I waitress). Doesn't bother me what others say

I say both. I don't get offended, no matter which a person says and I've never had someone tell me they were offended by either/or.

I say both but I say Happy Holidays on the lesser side and I only say that when I don't know the person or if they say it to me first. At work though I always say Merry Christmas, I work at a Christian daycare.

Quoting Kayla [:)]♥:" I usually say "Happy Hanukkah!" People usually reply with "But I don't celebrate hanukkah," and I say "Neither do I!""


:lol:

Whatever they say to me, I just say, "You, too!"
"Happy Weasel-Stomping Day!" "You, too!"

Merry Christmas, and no. If someone were to say Happy Hanukkah, Happy Solstice, or Happy Kwanza then more power to them. I wouldn't be offended.

I just say Happy Holidays because I figured it was a good habit to get into.
