... Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah or Happy Holidays when talking to people you know or just people you see around anywhere really?


Like a lot of stores around here have all their employees say "happy holidays" because saying the other two is offensive or some shit. idk

So what do you say?

Always one or the other? Or does it depend on the situation?

I don't know. Just anyone really.

Like if I go into a store I'll say it to the cashier or whoever when I'm leaving.

I usually go with Merry Christmas since that's what I'm used to. But a friend was recently telling me about people getting in trouble at the store he works at for not saying "happy holidays."

Just got me wondering.

I just say "goodbye, have a good'un". If someone says "Happy ____" to me I just say "You too". Passive conversationalist win

I'll say whatever they say to me back. I don't say any of them first, unless it's a friend or family that I know well enough to not offend them

I've not had anyone even say any of the options to me. I suppose, if given the choice, I'd say, "Happy Hanukkah" if they were Jewish or "Happy Holidays" if they weren't.

No 'Happy Kwanzaa' option means we can confirm Phils as the middle-class white racist we all suspected him of being

I didn't know how to spell it when I went to make the poll



But seriously, I guess it's more of a local thing than I thought. The one local Philly news station has shit like this all the time. Like how you shouldn't say "Christmas tree" and should say "holiday tree" instead because it's offensive.

They're not the best news station I'm beginning to see....

Not saying one or the other is right. Just wanted to see what everyone though.

I say Merry Christmas usually unless I know somebody celebrates differently. I work at Chapters and nobody has complained or told me to say anything different yet. I dunno, maybe I'm just too charming for people to get mad at me over it (:

This.
So far at work I've only said Merry Christmas to customers who wished me a Merry Christmas. I don't want to say Happy Holidays when Christmas and other religious dates aren't always holidays for everyone. A lot of people work over the Christmas period. Holidays are usually something taken in the summer, "holidays" usually refers to the school summer holidays in Britain too.

if I know what the person celebrates, I'll respond with the appropriate remark on said holiday.

if I don't, I'll just say merry christmas and look like an ass when they are jewish or something. Whatever.
