The proper greeting at Christmastime is "Merry Christmas" not "Happy Holidays"

and retailers who make the most money at Christmastime should pay heed to that all important fact and not play those vomit-inducing politically correct games advertising their goods for the "happy holidays season" instead of saying Christmas season.   Shove your "happy holidays" where the sun never shines.  I don't care which other festivals make an appearance at or nearabout Christmastime.  Christmas trumps them all...each and every last one of them.

With the holiday season comes  the annual controversy over whether people should say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays." This year, Gap finds itself in the middle of that debate.
For the past few years, conservatives have said people they call "secular progressives" are waging a war on Christmas. Now one faith-based group says the Gap is joining their side, although the San Francisco retailer doesn't quite see it that way.
It's the busiest shopping time of the year and when retailers try to lure consumers, the American Family Association wants their advertising to say "Merry Christmas."
"People buy gifts for Christmas, that's a tradition so there is nothing wrong with acknowledging Christmas in your promotions advertising and greetings," Tim Wildmon said.
His organization issues an annual "naughty or nice" list of companies. For the first time, Gap is listed as nice. Wildmon is declaring victory for what he describes as a policy change after years of talks with the gap..........

  1. Very well said! Every year, I make sure that I greet my family and loved ones with "MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR", thru either cards or sms. I think it sounds better too. My best and Merry Christmas wishes to all!
