Season Greetings

The Season Greetings also known as season's greetings of holiday greetings are a selection of greetings that are often spoken with good intentions to strangers, family, friends, or other people during the months of November, December and January. Holidays with greetings include Christmas, New Years Day, Chinese New Year, Thanksgiving (United States), and Hanukkh.
Typically, a greeting consists of the word "Happy" followed by the holiday, such as "Happy Hanukkah" or "Happy New Year", although the phrase "Merry Christmas" is a notable exception. In the United States, the collective phrase "Happy Holidays" is often used as a simple way to refer to all of its winter holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas Days and New Year's Day. Some controversy has arisen regarding the phrase "Happy Holidays" as an alleged attempt to diminish Christmas although its use promotes other holidays commonly celebrated in the United States.
