Aside from that, the greetings also want to give the message of joy and happiness to the individual being greeted.
If you do not wish to offend anyone with your greetings for the season, you can just use ‘Happy Holidays’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas’. The former is considered to be the prevalent greeting. Aside from that, ‘Happy Holidays’ are used to express good will not just for Christmas but even to the New Year. A late greeter or the procrastinator will still make his point even if the greetings come in late.
