I'm pretty sure that's because the 21st of December is the first day of winter and not the first day of Christmas Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

That said, I tell people "happy holidays!" because:
- It applies to everyone.
- I'm not a Christian myself.
- To me it's not just about Christmas, but a Happy New Year as well (which is also a holiday, or at least a day off work).
- They are holidays and people use "holidays" and "Christmas" interchangeably anyway (even the ones that don't make an issue out of Christmas).

A Dutch shop recently advertised with "Happy Holidays!" and a lot of people got butt hurt because they preferred the word "Christmas".
The shop explained that it meant all holidays in December (we have Sinterklaas on December fifth too, but that has become another political debate because of "Zwarte Piet").
Anyway, you can't say anything these days because people are whiny little bitches Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
