Poll: Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

What do you say during the holiday season?

It's a debate that seems to come up every year around this time: should people use the greeting "Merry Christmas" or something more generic such as "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings"?

The latter has become popular, with the variety of religious holidays taking place this time of year, but those who say there is a "War on Christmas" have rallied in recent years, saying insisting on "Happy Holidays" is too politically correct.

Which do you prefer? Vote in our poll or leave a comment below.

I say "Happy Holidays". When I wish someone happy holidays I feel I am including all beliefs as I do not want to offend anyone. If someone is not religious or chooses not to celebrate a December holiday, it includes New Year's. Just my preference. :)

BRAVO - Someone who actually knows the history of the Feast of Yule. Jesus was born according to where the Shepards supposidly were and the time when the census that put them in bethlehem was being held sometime in May truthfully,

So we only acknowledge every other holiday on the actual date, but for some reason christians started saying merry Christmas before it was Christmas. When did this "tradition" start and why? I know it was only in the last 100 years.
