    Pretty simple, really. Ellaborate if you feel the need.

    Truthfully, I'm a "Merry Christmas" kind of guy.

    The "Happy Holidays" PC types can blow me.

    So "Merry Christmas" all.

    Technically, I say "Merry Christmas, cheers!" Then raise my beer bottle and drink to the occasion....

    What, doesn't everybody?

    Merry Christmas for the sake of the poll.

    Had that said fuck OFF instead of fuck YOU, though...

    Merry Christmas all the way.

    Anyone else been to a Walmart recently? For the past couple years theyve been going the PC, "Happy Holidays" route. This year they are definitely over compensating. The one I went into to had 2 greaters saying Merry Christmas and a Santa Clause outside wishing you Merry Christmas when you left.

    Same here.

    I'd say that would be a reasonable interpretation.

    I suppose I have given into the pressure, I noticed all day yesterday that I was telling my patients Happy Holidays. In my defense I was meaning the holiday season of both Christmas and New Years and not necessarily trying to be PC, it is just what came out naturally. You can bet today I'll be saying Merry Christmas though.

    "Happy Christmas" generally.

    I don't care about most PC douchebaggery, but this one irks me because seriously, it just reeks of trying too hard.

    I have an abrasive personality, with a strong dislike of the human species as a whole. Random people that talk to me are much more likely to be greeted by Fuck You, rather than Merry Christmas. I have been working on this, but each time I feel as though I have turned a corner someone shows me yet again how stupid humans are.

    If it's Christmas day, and I want to acknowledge that, I say "Merry Christmas." Just as if it were Hannukah, or New Year's, or any other holiday.

    If I want to acknowledge the season in general (which includes some 5 or 6 holidays), I say Happy Holidays. It's not an issue of being pc (although I don't think there's anything wrong with being pc per se), it's an issue of what I'm trying to highlight.

    Merry Fucking Christmas.

    This leads to uncomfortable stammering on the recipients part, which entertains me.

    I am not so nice, I guess.

    The bank will not let me say Merry Christmas to my clients so I am forced to say "happy holidays" while at work. I am a "Merry Christmas" type of girl on my own time.

    This. When I worked at Bass Pro many a year ago, I had some customer bitch me out because I said Happy Holidays, meaning Christmas and New Years. Bass Pro didn't make us say one thing or another. That'll make you wanna smack a bitch though, when you're busy as fuck at work and say a simple pleasantry only to be shit on by an easily offended customer.

    Actually, I had a guy I work with who I'm friends with on Facebook for some reason, tell me yesterday that "It's Merry Christmas" because I had told everyone to have a Happy Festivus on fb.

    People get too butthurt for no reason nowadays - and none of them get Seinfeld references.

    I like when you say Have a Merry Christmas and someone says "I don't celebrate Christmas".
    Oh in that case, have a shitty Christmas, and have fun burning in hell. It's a fucking pleasantry, and nice thing to say, stop being a bitch.


    I'm atheist, but say Merry Christmas. Because it's Christmas time, regardless of what I celebrate.

    Who really believes that Christmas is about the Baby Jesus anymore anyway. Sure, a few people try to remember the "reason for the season" but for the rest of us, it just means presents, family, time off from work, good food and drinks. Who doesn't want to celebrate that???

    "Festivus for the rest of us."

    In all seriousness, I just go the Merry Christmas with the rest of the bible belt, though.
