Merry Christmas! (oooops!)
You see, if you're not a Christian, then you may take offense at me wishing you happiness for an occasion you may not celebrate.
Therefore, I feel I must hide behind something more politically correct.
So, I wish you Happy Holidays!
No, wait, I cannot wish you that, either. Why not, you again ask?
Because the word "holiday" comes from the Olde English "halig daeg" or Holy Day. Since I don't know if you are an atheist or not, I don't want to risk offending you by wishing you joy on a day whose "holiness" you may not agree with.
OK, so what am I left with? Oh! I've got one!
Hold on ... I don't think I can use that one either. Why not, you must be sick of asking by now?
Well, some say that "Jesus is the Reason for the Season." While I would dare not challenge that statement, some might believe that to use the word "season" in the context of a greeting this time of year might offend anyone who may not believe in Jesus.
So is there ANYTHING I can safely say in order to wish you well during the month of December?
I guess not. Have a Nice Day.
