A research study indicates that two-thirds of respondents ages 18-29 preferred the use of secular greetings during the holidays, instead of those related to Christianity. 

Half of Americans believe that the phrase 'Happy Holidays' ought to be used instead of the traditional 'Merry Christmas.' 

Sixty percent of Republicans were reported saying that people should use 'Merry Christmas,' while fifty-eight percent of Democrats said the opposite. 

Do you spread holiday cheer during the season with a 'Happy Holidays' or 'Merry Christmas'?
