Do You Prefer ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘Happy Holidays’? — Survey of the Day

Happy Holidays

The holiday season presents a bit of a greeting conundrum. Do you say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy holidays”? This decision weighs particularly heavily on retailers, who want to use verbiage that encourages the widest swath of Americans to spend money at their stores.

According to a poll of 1,000 adult by Rasmussen Reports, 68 percent prefer when retailers put “Merry Christmas” on their signs and literature, whereas 23 percent favor “Happy holidays.”

However, stores that opt for the more inclusive “Happy holidays” needn’t worry about much of a backlash. Last year Rasmussen found that even though 88 percent of Americans celebrate Christmas, most don’t mind being wished “Happy holidays.”
