Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas! Warm Winter Wishes! Happy Hanukkah! Joyous Kwanzaa! Yuletide Greetings! Seasons Greetings! Happy Festival of Lights! Joyful Festivus! Joyous Winter Solstice! Merry Las Posadas! Happy Diwali!
The holidays are a time of joy and family and giving, regardless of the celebrations. Nine out of ten Americans celebrate Christmas in 2013. In America, 75% of the population believes in the virgin birth of Jesus. Only half see Christmas as a religious holiday while 1/3 views it as a cultural holiday instead.
Whatever holiday you’re celebrating, celebrate it with love and kindness. Over half of Americans (52%) don’t care how stores present holiday greetings, up from less than half (46%) in 2012. “Merry Christmas” has been typically perceived as the ‘default’ but that limits all of the other holidays celebrated around the same time. These include Christmas, Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe, St. Lucia Day, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Omisoka, Yule, and Saturnalia.
This is a moment to remember that there are multiple holidays around the season and to cherish the ones you love.
