It's a debate that now seems to arise every year around this time:
Should people use the term "Merry Christmas" or something more generic
such as "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings"?
The latter has become popular due to the variety of religious
holidays taking place this season, but those who say there is a "War on
Christmas" have rallied in recent years, saying people who insist on
"Happy Holidays" are being too politically correct.

Others had different feelings. Some people thought that this response from Liz Chechanover Ragusa
made more sense: "Happy holidays unless you know specifically what the person you are speaking to celebrates."Barbara Jean Rugen
's response also got a lot of feedback: "How
about we all just respect each others beliefs and say how we feel. If
your giving your well wishes to someone that's what really matters leave
