    "Unlike most of the broadcast networks CNN has the courage, decency and courtsey to say the words MERRY CHRISTMAS.
    Usually and in most cases the phrase 'happy holidays' is the ' politically correct' term used this time of year."

    Or perhaps people say Happy Holidays or Season's Greetings because they want to be inclusive of Jews, Muslims, atheists, neo-pagans, and anyone else who doesn't celebrate your particular sectarian holiday tradition. I think that "Happy Holidays" is nicely inclusive, and I find the wailing and gnashing of teeth that goes on about failure to say "Merry Christmas" hilarious. What a misguided waste of time.

    Unlike most of the broadcast networks CNN has the courage, decency and courtsey to say the words MERRY CHRISTMAS.
    Usually and in most cases the phrase "happy holidays" is the " politically correct" term used this time of year.

    Unfortunitally many people are under the mis-conception that the Christmas season is a time to spend money , eat and drink. They forget that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

    Merry Christmas may make some people uncomfortable . If so too bad.

    Just keep up the good work and to all in CNN
    MERRY CHRISTMAS
