At this time of year there is always a debate, do you say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays? I’m not actually religious, but I do celebrate Christmas. It’s a time to remember family and friends and be thankful for the past year. I love it – the lights on the tree, the food, the songs, the sappy movies, the presents (especially giving them).
As far as wishing someone Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas goes, I probably fall along a 50-50 split. If I know they celebrate Christmas then that’s my go to, if I’m unsure then it’s probably Happy Holidays. Or, if I know Hanukkah is their thing, I have no problem wishing them a Happy Hanukkah and if they say it to me, I take it in the spirit it is given and smile and say “thanks, you too”. Same goes for Kwanza.
I found this video the other day and thought it was a perfect way to wish everyone the best of the holiday season.
Whether you’re lighting the menorah, trimming the tree or counting the days of Kwanza with a kinara, I wish you a safe and happy holiday! For the next few days, I’ll be counting down to Christmas. Join me as I share some of my favourite things about this time of year.
