Which is the saying of “MERRY CHRISTMAS” or “HAPPY HOLIDAYS” is more Politically Correct?
Controversy has arisen regarding the celebration, recognition, legitimization, or acknowledgment of the Christmas holiday (or lack thereof) in government, media, advertising, retail, and various secular and religious environments throughout the holiday's history.
Modern-day controversy, often associated with use of the term "war on Christmas", occurs mainly in countries such as the United States,Canada, and to a much lesser extent the United Kingdom. This often involves objections to government or corporate avoidance of the day's association with Christianity in efforts to be multiculturally sensitive. In some cases, popular aspects of Christmas, such as Christmas trees, lights, and decorating are still prominently showcased, but are associated with unspecified "holidays" rather than with Christmas.
Also, several US chain retailers, such as Walmart, Macy's, and Sears, have experimented with greeting their customers with "Happy Holidays" or "Season's Greetings" rather than with "Merry Christmas".Some opponents have denounced the generic term "Holidays" and avoidance of using the term "Christmas" as being politically correct.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY HANUKKAH
P.S. Remember also: There are a few other holidays this time of year, and the folks who celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule, Saturnalia, Festivus and Ramadan — which does fall in December occasionally — are also citizens of America.
