4 Reasons Why We Say "Happy Holidays"

1. Because it's more convenient than saying "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year." or "Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year."  

So many words.

2. Because the word "merry" is not a word that is really in common usage. No one says "Merry birthday" or "that sure was a merry party last night!" It just feels a bit twee, it doesn't trip easily off the tongue. 

Feeling merry, lads?
Pip, pip!

3. Because we're not particularly bothered by the fact that some people  celebrate Channukah or Ashura, or Saturnalia or even nothing.

In the little town of Saugus, MA (pop about 25,000), the elementary schools said "no" to the fire dept guys dressing up like Santa and visiting the schools (actually, it was a single superintendent). This, of course, was proof of that "The left will do anything to ban Christianity from our society."

Funny no one is talking about how the Santas were immediately reinstated. I guess it's scarier if everyone keeps believing Santa's dead in Saugas.
