What does this "Happy Holidays" mean?Is the whole month of december considered as a hoilday ?Are you guys not working for the entire month of december ??We have a holiday only on Christmas day. Enlighten me ??
Holidays are normally 24th, 25th , 31st December and 1st January. Holiday Season on the other hand is from November 28th to January 1st. No one gets an entire month off.. but its the build up to Christmas and New Year and is hence termed as Holiday Season.
This is my pet peeve. I say "Merry Christmas". Even if the person is not a Christian there is no reason for them to be offended. What if the person is an athiest and doesn't celebrate any holiday? In that case is "Happy Holidays" offensive? Should I say "wishes for your general happiness" instead so that I don't offend anyone? What a bunch of politically correct BS! No matter who you are, December 25th is Christmas; it even says so on the calender. So I wish you a Merry Christmas. If you don't like it, you can screw.
i have almost a month off. dec 11th till jan 4th. god its great being a student! i think one of the reasons is that hannuka and some other holiday occur this time of year also [ December 28, 2003: Message edited by: Randall Twede ]
