Merry christmas has always been in the mouths of people here. It never went anywhere. Happy holidays has also always been a vocal greeting or parting words.
Hanukkah, christmas, new years. Holidays.....

Nice try. I used to like being whipped - as you know - but I've grown tired of that kind of foreplay.

Benjamin Franklin. His accomplishments speak for themselves. Since Columbus didn't discover America, we'll eliminate Columbus Day.

Christmas is now "The Holidays"...and Easter (Easter eggs are now called "spring spheres") doesn't contain Christ's name. Yeah, MLK was OK, for a riot agitator.

Christmas is still Christmas, no matter what the PC douchebags try to tell you. Easter doesn't need his name; it's all about his sacrifice. MLK preached peace; his followers were really bad listeners.

Got it. Yeah, I was referring more to the national chain department store and Mall mindset and their TV commercials. For 10 years, you couldn't see "Merry Christmas" anywhere in any national department store. Glad the public rebelled.
It will always be Merry Christmas out of my mouth too.
