...TO WISH SOMEONE
1. Merry Christmas
2. Happy Chanukkah
3. Season's Greetings
4. Happy Kwanzaa
5. Happy Holidays
6. kuwa na krismasi njema
7. any other seasonal greeting that I can't think of right now
If someone cares enough to wish you a "Happy Holiday," please don't give them a lecture about how it is a crime to say "Merry Christmas," nowadays. Nothing turns my stomach more than to wish someone well and get a lecture because of it.
If someone wishes you a "Joyeuz Noel," please thank them and take ANY lovely seasonal greetings in the spirit in which it is intended.
NONE of them was EVER meant to be an insult.
