Saying “Merry Christmas” is a way to wish someone well during the Christmas season. Yes, the phrase reveals the religious leanings of the speaker, but it is not imposing their religious views on another. If someone were to wish me a “Super Solstice” or “Happy Chanukah”, I would respond in kind. I wouldn’t be offended, nor would I feel that their beliefs were being imposed upon me. When society as a whole disavows saying “Merry Christmas” and endorses the generic “Happy Holidays” or its’ ilk, Christians are, in effect, being forced to hide their religious views. This is just wrong.
Here at Farm Country Insurance we are not forcing anyone to use a particular greeting. Neither are we preventing them from using the greeting of their choice. So, you may hear “Happy Holidays” but you may also hear “Merry Christmas” .
From me, have a very Merry Christmas.
