The Reckoner!

Should we address our winter solstice mail salutation contact efforts as "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays"?

Ok.  So it's that time of year again and we all have obligatory notes to send.  

The fact that they are an anachronism better left to the Victorian Age aside, how are we to address them without offending any party but staying true to our give-me-gifts-and-cookies-or-never-speak-to-me-again selves?  

Tell us, Reckonauts!

I generally don't want to piss off all of the people who celebrate Festivus this time of year, so I'm a 'Happy Holidays' kind of guy.  Certainly since the 2002 'Airing of Grievances' at my house.

Man oh man this topic upsets me...If someone celebrates Christmas then by all means say it to each other! It's not about "other" people. It's a holiday for a specific group and they have the right to enjoy it. Same with every other religion or belief, they have their day as well. Just my two cents.

O.k. here is what I do.  If I am not sure of what the person/people believe I wish them Happy Holidays.  If I know for sure it will always be Merry Christmas!!

Theresa...that is exactly what I do. Happy holidays when you are unsure and Merry Christmas to everyone else.

Heck, I'm just impressed you think the USPS will be around long enough to deliver these things!
