National Poll: "Merry Christmas" vs "Happy Holidays"

Here’s some holiday interest:
According to a recent poll of 1000 adults, when asked the question - Would you prefer stores to show signs saying “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”?

Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Americans prefer stores to use the phrase “Merry Christmas” in their seasonal advertising rather than the generic “Happy Holidays.” A Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 adults finds that just 23% prefer the “Happy Holidays” greeting.

    For the most part, I like happy holidays because it encompasses more than just one holiday that falls within December and January. However, I will say “happy Hanukkah” on Hanukkah, “merry Christmas” on Christmas, “happy new year” on new year’s day, etc. Regardless, people shouldn’t be offended by what a person/company chooses to say during the holiday season and take it for what it is…a greeting.
