Grating Greetings

The Trib today reported on the controversy over which is better to say: Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. Naturally, lawyers have gotten involved in this biting contemporary controversy.

But is Happy Holidays truly secular? "Based on the English words holy and day... holidays originally represented special days of the Christian Church calendar."

So political officials, take note! Soon you may be sued for saying Happy Holidays!

If you don't want to sound religious
In a land that's grown litigious,
I think it would be most clever
To just say: Happy Whatever!
