    do you still say merry Christmas and a happy new year, or do you let the liberal political incorrect influence you by saying happy hollidays

    Sevaral years ago I had a lady correct me when I said Merry Christmas. She said, "No, it's Happy Holiday's." I, being a quick witted individual said "Fantastic, so your saying it is a "Holy" day!" Then I said "Happy "Holy"day's" and she just got a pathetic look on her face.

    I say what I want, but I always let people know that Jesus is the reason for the season.

    Merry Chriatmas and Happy Holy-days and Jesus is the reason for the season.

    I'll stick with Merry CHRISTmas and correct anyone and anything I can. It's the celebration of Christ's birthday.

    How would you like it if someone came along on your birthday and wished you a "happy rock day" and called attention to everything except you?

    I understand what you are saying but then again, this how I see it. God knows the heart. Heck, there are a lot of people that say Merry Christmas but have no relationship with god. I would rather have someone come up to me and say "happy rock day" who really cared about me as opposed to someone that said "Happy Birthday" but didn't really mean it.

    My point is the days of Christmas are about the Holy one Jesus Christ. No one will rob me of my freedom to express it as my heart desires. As far as what others say, I don't have time to correct them because I am trying to fix my own flaws.

    For me it depends on the time of the year it is... If it's early November. I say have "Happy Holidays"... About a week before Thanksgiving I'll say "Happy Thanksgiving" But, after Thanksgiving is in the history books, it's nothing but "Merry Christmas" up until the 26th of December, then it switches to "Have a Happy New Year".

    But, never "Happy Holidays" for Christmas itself. :)

    I'm glad to see more and more MERRY CHRISTMAS being used in recent years.

    Plus there are Christmas movies and shows everyday on TV now.

    ~MERRY CHRISTMAS and a safe and prosperous NEW YEAR to you all~

    I always say Merry Christmas, I hate the 'politically correct' happy holidays nonsense.

    Merry Christmas, no matter who I am greeting. It tends to pizz me off for someone to say happy holidays to me.

    There is a DJ on one of the Local radio stations (Music) that has made my day a time or two. He says, " when I am greeted with "happy holidays" I say, Holidays? And what holiday might that be? When they say "Well Christmas of course". He responds, "OH Christmas, why didn't you say so, MERRY CHRISTMAS to you too.
    I have even heard him say it to sponsors that call in to sell their stuff.

    Wonder how long he can keep this up before he gets canned?
