'Merry Christmas' or 'Happy Holiday'? Your response says a lot about your politics, study says | The Star-Telegram: Republicans and Democrats are completely divided on how stores should greet customers during the holiday season, according to a new poll.
Two-thirds of Democrats (66 percent) said stores or business should greet customers with “Happy Holidays” or “Seasons Greetings” instead of “Merry Christmas” out of respect for people of different faiths. Two-thirds of Republicans (67 percent) said stores and business should not go with the religion-neutral sayings.
The poll was conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, a nonprofit, independent research organization.
