President-elect Trump this week says it's OK to say 'Merry Christmas' again; do you think more retailers should go back to saying 'Merry Christmas' instead of 'Happy Holidays'?

I like the idea of happy holidays but only because you got all your bases covered, including new years.

What did he mean by "again?" I never stopped.

I don't think this matters one bit. The only thing that is important is that we wish other people well. Which words are chosen to do so... Not important.

I think they should go back to saying whatever they want that they think will get them more business.

I couldn't care less, but they certainly shouldn't be saying "merry Christmas" if they are open for business on Christmas Day.

They should say whatever they personally, or their store's policy, says. The President shouldn't have any say in it.

I am so over this stupid "Merry Christmas" versus "Happy Holidays" thing. Talk about whining over nothing. Which ever is said, another person is wishing you well. Run with it and be appreciative.

If they are open Christmas or the day before, maybe, but mostly as a matter of policy I'd think they would want to include all of the holidays in the season and not just the one day.

I've had some retail store workers go out of their way to say, specifically, Merry CHRISTMAS-- even at a Walgreen's!

The un-Obamization of America has already begun! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Which is why the speech police should shut up and people should just say what they themselves want to say without any consideration for what the hearer would like to hear.

On Valentines Day, I'm going to say happy holiday to see how many puzzled faces that I get.

Merry Christmas doesn't hurt anyone. It is a seasonal greeting that does not imply adherence to a set of religious beliefs.
Stop the stupidity.

Yes, but it's their choice and I don't care either way.

The "war on Christmas" is traced back to roughly 2005, but it's still funny that you blame Obama for it πŸ˜†

I say that due to the fact that they'd be keeping employees away from their families, which takes away from the holiday. Therefore, they'd have no right to say "merry Christmas."

They should, and it's always been ok to say Christmas. Christmas is the reason for the season.

It's the day we celebrate the birth of Christ, his birthday was likely in the spring.

Merry Christmas!
