I always say Merry Christmas, even if it's in response to someone wishing me Happy Holidays.  People who don't celebrate Christmas should get over themselves if they're offended by a sincere greeting.

Merry Christmas and I've never met anyone that was offended by it. If someone wished me Happy Hannukkah in Israel or Dia De Los Muertos (day of the dead) in Mexico, I wouldn't take offense. I don't understand how people can be so sensitive that a stranger's greeting causes them harm. Particularly when those people are still willing to take advantage of Christmas sales, Christmas break, Christmas bonuses, etc.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!

I prefer to say Merry Christmas.  Most people understand that.  I have yet to have an offended person from it.  If I did, I'd just tell them that Christmas is a day and I'm wishing them a happy one.

 

If I know someone is Jewish, I wish them a Happy Chanukkah instead.

Happy Holidays for sure.  Covers all and is safer.  I guess we have greater diversity of religion here than in some areas of the country, esp based on these responses.
