No matter the holiday, any greeting acceptable

“Happy Holidays” and “Season’s Greetings” seem to be irking some people instead of a Merry Christmas greeting.

No matter how one wishes to use a greeting around the holidays, it should suffice. Whether it is a “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Holidays,” “Season’s Greetings,” “Joyful Holiday,” “Joyful Season,” “Healthy Holidays” — all encompass a cheerful and positive salutation.

All are greetings to wish others’ happiness, joy and good health.

I accept any kind or any type of a greeting during the holidays or at any other time of the year.

“Merry Christmas” is traditional and lovely, but there are other holidays during the month of December.

There is Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Pearl Harbor Day, which should be a national holiday.

December is a very prolific month for events.

 There is the National Drunk and Drugged Driving Awareness Day, Belgium Lover’s Fair day, International Volunteer Day and the first day of winter.

So when I’m greeted with a holiday wish, I accept each one as heartfelt. No matter the greetings or wishes, all should be acceptable for the holidays and events in the month of December, and the one day in January, New Year’s Day.

Season and event greetings to one and all.
