-“Merry Christmas” Still Preferred to “Happy Holidays” by Most Americans

According to a recent Rasmussen Reports survey 69% of Americans prefer to be greeted with “Merry Christmas” on store signs during this season instead of “Happy Holidays” which only 24% say they support.

According to Rasmussen these numbers have not really changed in the last few years or so even though the majority of retail stores use the ‘Happy Holidays’ designation in order not to offend a diverse customer base.

Response: Actually I personally prefer to see both since it is more inclusive. ‘Happy Holiday’ recognizes that there are several holidays during this season. However ‘Merry Christmas’ should still be used also since it is still the dominant American celebration during this season.

What does disturb me is the PC prevalence of stores like Wal-Mart who insist that their employees never use or respond with the ‘Merry Christmas’ greeting even when  customers use it. Worse yet are those stores that refer to Christmas trees as ‘Holiday Trees’. I find it ridiculous.

The cities who changed the name of their Christmas Parade to ‘Holiday Parade’ doesn’t offend or bother me personally but to call the municipal Christmas Tree lighting a ‘Holiday Tree’ lighting begs for some reality since the decorated trees have always been associated with Christmas and not some other ‘holiday’.            *Top of the Blog
