Happy Holidays!

        Now this statement has gotten a pretty bad wrap among Christians lately. The religious community is almost offended by this word that is used instead of Merry Christmas, but before you get too angry about it let me fill you in on this phrase
        The word holiday comes from the word HOLY DAY! This was any day that was observed for religious reasons. The word holy day morphed into the word holiday over time. Holy day is about the birth of Jesus, it was truly a holy day! So the next time someone says, “Happy Holidays” just say, “Happy holy day to you as well, the day Christ was born!”
        Many people don't even know that when they substitute Happy Holiday for Merry Christmas they are still referring to the birth of Jesus!
