Culture Shock: Majority of Those Polled Prefer 'Merry Christmas'

Deck those halls and ring the bells: a recent Rasmussen poll says 67% of respondents prefer the term "Merry Christmas" to the bland "Happy Holidays" in seasonal advertising by retailers. Naturally, more Republicans preferred it than Democrats, but even a slim majority of Dems like saying "Merry Christmas."

No wonder Lowe's had to back off their "Family Tree" catalog offering.

A large majority of Americans -- 95% -- celebrate Christmas, Christian or not. Don't worry, Christmas haters...no one is going to force you to have a Merry Christmas. But is having someone say it to you akin to having water doused on the Wicked Witch of the West? Get over your phobia already!


Don't be afraid to say it...the majority prefers it!

Glad to hear that most Americans haven't yet been brainwashed by the "happy holidays" tripe. Perhaps advertisers will eventually realize that.

Good to hear. This P.C. nonsense is getting way out of hand!

I am so sick of the attacks on Christmas by the P.C. crowds. We are celebrating the birth of Christ and it's the time of year for it.

So - Merry Christmas to all.
