The phrase Happy Holidays is and IMO is a liberal phrase to take away our freedom of speech AKA  politically correct. The subject should say Merry Christmas or Happy Kwanzaa or Happy Hanukkah. A person should not be offended on whatever religious background  that you maybe.

From me to all Merry Christmas and a Happy and safe New Year!

 I'm tired of being "PC"!

P.S. keep the X out of Christmas. IM sick of seeing that to.

Whenever anyone says Xmas instead of Christmas we think it is not the right way to say. Although it is a common misconception that the term Xmas is disrespectful, its origins show this not to be true. The Greek word for Christ is Xristos, and the letter "X" was frequently used as a religious symbol. Thus Xmas is merely an abbreviated form of the word Christmas and was first used by Europeans in the 16th century. They began using the first initial of Christ's name, 'X' in place of the word Christ in Christmas as a shorthand form of the word. This abbreviation for Christmas is of Greek origin. Although the early Christians understood that X stood for Christ's name, later Christians who did not understand the Greek language mistook 'Xmas' as a sign of disrespect. This tradition began in the early Christian church. Later on it was frequently used as a holy symbol. So the word 'X' stands for holy and religious there is nothing wrong in it.

Merry Xmas

I hope nobody took my post too seriously.  I was just having a little fun while posting an educational tidbit at the same time.
