    It’s what people are used to saying. Older movies have people saying “Happy Christmas”. Say that now and someone is going to get their panties in a bunch.

    You’d prefer “Miserable Thanksgiving” and “Disasterous Christmas”?

    Because Christmas is a much older celebration. ‘Merry’ is an old fashioned word, once in common usage, so the phrase ‘merry Christmas’ would generally remain unchanged as it became a traditional greeting. Thanksgiving, being celebrated only in U.S, would have phrases that evolve quicker, as the language itself evolves.

    British and Australians both say Merry Christmas too, and Happy new year.

    Generally speaking its not happy or merry.many people go without and even those who do give this month are back to their selfish self centered ways. It makes me want to puke.Only Gods earthy will cure all this misery.Man are hypocrites but as soon as nov/Dec come they are saints until Jan 1
    How much money do you contribute all year round for the charities that are always on TV. Even those organizations are fake. There was a 60 interview showing all money contributed doesn’t go to where its promised to go.
