Interfaith dialogue

'Merry Christmas' vs. 'Happy holidays'


Sometimes, we get involved in arguments that seem (to me, at least) downright silly. And one of these is about whether to say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy holidays" to family, friends and co-workers at this time of the year.

As someone who hosts an interfaith radio show and works with several people who are Jewish, Muslim or agnostic and welcomes guests who represent the full panoply of faith traditions, it's easy to decide which to use.
