I like the following comments by Roger Boggs, a Karate and Judo Instructor from Arizona:
Holiday greetings are a selection of greetings that are often spoken with good intentions to strangers, family, friends, or other people during the months of December and January. Holidays with greetings include Christmas, New Year’s Day, Chinese New Year, Thanksgiving (United States), and Hanukkah. Some greetings are more prevalent than others, depending on the cultural and religious status of any given area.

Typically, a greeting consists of the word “Happy” followed by the holiday, such as “Happy Hanukkah” or “Happy New Year”, although the phrase “Merry Christmas” is a notable exception. In the United States, the collective phrase “Happy Holidays” is often used as a simple way to refer to all of its winter holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.

There has been some controversy lately regarding the phrase “Happy Holidays” as an attempt to diminish Christmas although its use promotes other holidays commonly celebrated in the United States.

So either way… Happy Hoildays or as I prefer …  Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Better yet for a play on words…  “Merry Kick-Mas” with the Spanish word mas meaning more.  Lets “Kick More” in the New Year.

See you in class,

Mr. Jolly
