The way I see it is, whether you say Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, or whatever else, I’m not going to get mad at you. If you wish me Happy Hanukkah, I’m not going to get mad at you, even though I’m not Jewish. In my family, we say Merry Christmas.
I think what we need to do is make absolutely certain that we are doing the thing that makes people feel like we care, we’re warm, and we’re wishing them good greetings, no matter how you say it.
So this year, in a world where everyone is trying to figure out what the other person’s doing wrong, why don’t we focus more on the intention and less on the actual words? So Merry Christmas to you, anything that makes you feel better.
My team and I wish you a joyous season. I hope you take time to celebrate you and those you care about. Take care.
