    "Christ"mas. There is a reason for the season. It is Merry Christmas all the way for me!

    Happy Holidays, because not everyone celebrates Christmas. Christmas is not the" reason for the season". Just because it rhymes does not make it true. Hanukkah, Saturnalia, Winter Solstice all came first, just to name a few. And I always thought that " Happy Holidays" helps to include New Years in one's holiday greeting.

    Okay, I am referring to the holiday on December 25.
    Happy New Year is for New Year's!
    Does anyone actually say "Happy Winter Solstice?"

    A season is much longer than one day. And yes, I do say Happy Solstice or Happy Yule, but only to people I know celebrate those holidays. To the general public I say Happy Holidays, because I don't just assume that everyone celebrates the same as me.

    --Look on the calendar at December 25th...What does it say? It says CHRISTMAS....Not HOLIDAY.....I understand that there are other things going on around that time but on December 25th...IT"S CHRISTMAS!!!!--

    Then only say "Merry Christmas" on December 25 and quit whining when people say something else on every other day.
    I say both and I'm not Christian but I do celebrate Christmas. It depends on my mood and who I'm talking to. If I don't know them and I'm not sure they are Christian then I say "Happy Holidays" because it's rude to assume everyone is Christian. If they say Merry Christmas first or it's obvious they are Christian I say "Merry Christmas".
    I really don't see what Christians are getting so worked up about. The holiday "season" is several weeks in December/early January. Christmas is December 25. "Happy Holiday" is a perfectly acceptable greeting during those weeks since there are other holidays going on besides Christmas.
    According to my calandar, Hanukkah starts on the 22nd, Kwanzaa starts on the 26th, the Winter Soltice is on the 21st and New Years is a week after Christmas.
    Christmas is just one day. Hanukkah lasts 8 days, Kwanzaa lasts 7 days so what are Christians complaining about. If they want to be fair they they should be saying Happy Hanukkah from the 22nd-29th and Happy Kwanzaa from the 26th-1st and Merry Christmas on just Dec. 25th, and happy Yuly/Winter Soltice on the 21st.
    Or...they could just say Happy Holidays and include everyone.
