In 2005 there was a great deal of controversy over the use of “Happy Holidays.” As if not saying “Merry Christmas” was somehow anti-Christian. It’s interesting that “Christmas” was once considered as a secular, if not pagan, celebration by some of the same churches raising a fuss today.

Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Kwanza, Hanuka, or just a day off, I said “Happy Holidays” and I mean it.
