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!
By Michelle Healy, USA TODAY November 30th 2009
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.

Here is a thought that is over looked when Shopping online. Retailers are doing all they can to get you to buy from their site. From the consumer’s point of view, they often think that is all come down to price only, but over look the expert advice, they receive from a specialty snowboard shop. Specialty Snowboard Shops don’t put together package deals online in a one size fits all way. One way to determine if a shop has your best interest in mind is weather or not they bundle together packages Boards, boots, bindings, at a great discount. The motive behind this type of packaging is greater profit for the retailer. In most cases they purchase large amounts of boards boots and bindings that don’t sell. So the question to ask is why didn’t they sell? So lets go through why these items didn’t sell. The number one reason, a board doesn’t sell is graphics, I remember the year Danny Kass one the Olympic gold, his board’s graphic was this overly punk thing that you got tired of after 10 seconds, but the board it’s self was great! So in a package deal, they may be some good decks offered. The other boards you find in these packages are made for packages. These boards are made with the motive of making it as cheap as possible, often heavier, less responsive, and prone to fall apart. The same can be said about both boots and binding.
The bindings have a job to do, they must hold your boot firmly down to your board, so your able to control your board. Some of the cheaper plastics, will stretch allowing your boot to lift up in the binding. Depending on what kind of riding you do this could be a good or bad thing. Some forgiveness from you bindings if your focus is park riding, is a good thing, being able to tweak your equipment, is desirable. If your focus is improved stability at high speeds then a stiffer binding is what you want.
The reason boots don’t sell in a small way is how they look, but a far bigger reason is fit. If your shopping packages online, with the motive of saving as much money as possible, keep in mind when it comes to boots, not all boots fit all feet. People are funny, the boot is the most important part of your equipment and is often the piece of equipment that people put the least amount of thought into. The odds are against you getting a comfortable boot that can hold your foot firmly down.
So buyer beware, if an online dealer is offering a package deal, there is a good chance that you may suffer in pain and lack the performance you want.
