  • I have no preference for what people say to me, but I say Merry Christmas. It's just what I'm used to saying, I don't really think about it. However, when writing it, if I don't know what the person celebrates, I'll usually write Happy Holidays.

  • You can tell me Merry anything or Happy anything and I will respond!

  • I tend to say either Blessed Yule or Yule Tide Greetings over either of those two... If I HAVE to use one of those, I stick to Happy Holidays, never Merry Christmas.
