In the past several years, “Happy Holidays” was shoved down our throats and “Merry Christmas” was taboo. This year, I noticed a marked increase in “Merry Christmas” on TV, from the major networks to the smaller networks. Thanks Donald for nixing political correct.
Christians, followers of Jesus Christ, understandably prefer the phrase “Merry Christmas.” Christmas is not a “white” holiday, it is for everyone. If you do not believe in Christ, there is always Santa Claus who brings toys to girls and boys on Christmas, not on holiday.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
