67% Prefer Merry Christmas while 26% Opt for Happy Holidays
Thursday, November 22, 2007
As the holiday season begins, 67% of American adults like stores to use the phrase “Merry Christmas” in their seasonal advertising rather than “Happy Holidays.” A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 26% prefer the Happy Holidays line.
There is no gender gap on this question and few demographic differences. From a politically partisan perspective, 88% of Republicans prefer “Merry Christmas” while just 57% of Democrats favor the saying.
The poll says … Merry Christmas!

If you think greetings such as “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” are poor substitutes for “Merry Christmas,” you’ve got company.
A USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday finds that 69% of adults surveyed say “Merry Christmas” is the greeting they most likely would use this time of year when first meeting someone. That’s up from 56% in 2004. Only 29% would opt for “Happy Holidays,” down from 41% in 2004.
Summer is here and now is the time to protect the only set of eyes you have from the sun’s harmful rays. Most people are aware of the dangerous effects ultraviolet (UV) rays have on their skin, but many people don’t realize the damaging effects these UV rays have on their eyes. UV radiation, whether from natural sunlight or artificial UV rays, can damage the eye’s surface tissues as well as the cornea and lens. UV radiation can burn the front surface of the eye, similar to sunburn on the skin. Extended exposure to the sun’s UV rays has been linked to eye damage, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pingueculae, pterygia and photokeratitis (snow blindness) that can cause temporary vision loss. Short of becoming nocturnal, the best way to protect your eyes is to wear sunglasses that block 100% of UV Rays. All of the sunglasses from the Sunglass Outlet block 100% of harmful UV Rays and right now we want to celebrate lifelong vision health by offering 20% off all sunglasses!
