I grew up hearing Merry Christmas so that is what I prefer to hear. I don't believe Jews, Muslims, or anyone else should be upset over hearing Merry Christmas. I would never be offended to hear Happy Hanukkah. They are both seasons greetings and personally I do not understand what the big deal is. With that being said, although I prefer Merry Christmas, I am not affended at Happy Holidays either.
I prefer to hear Merry Christmas over Happy Holidays. With that being said, I do not understand what the big issue is over hearing Merry Christmas. There are many people in this society who are not Christian and do not celebrate Christmas. There are people who are celebrating other holidays instead of Christmas. What is wrong with saying Happy Holidays to these people? Happy holidays cover all of the holidays. If people are offended by Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays they are hyper sensitive. There are far more serious problems to worry about.
