Merry Christmas cards or Happy Holidays cards? In recent times, this has been a difficult choice for people during the holiday season. We don’t want to offend the recipient of a card, especially when your intentions are meant to be kind and genuine to begin with. It is a good thing to be aware of what your recipient celebrates so you can be prepared.
Happy Holidays cards are a nice choice to have because they are appropriate for any holiday celebrated during the season. This can include Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Thanksgiving, New Years, and many others. Some people may feel that commercialization of Christmas overshadows the holiday they celebrate, so a Happy Holidays card could really mean a lot to that special someone.
Merry Christmas cards are a great thing to have on hand as well. There are plenty of folks who feel strongly about saying “Merry Christmas” rather than “Happy Holidays”. These cards are even more appropriate if you know your co-workers, friends, or loved ones celebrate the holiday. If you’re heavily involved in your church or if you simply celebrate Christmas with your family every year then this is also a perfect choice to have on hand.
While I personally would be able to find more use from “Happy Holiday” cards, it really comes down to personal choice and lifestyle in the end. There are many folks who would get more use out of Christmas cards, and that’s why it is a wonderful thing that we have both options to choose from!
