Rasmussen: ‘Merry Christmas’ vs ‘Happy Holidays’

Sunday, November 29, 2009

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds:

  • 72% of adults prefer "Merry Christmas," while 22% like "Happy Holidays”
  • Older Americans favor "Merry Christmas" more than younger adults
  • Married adults fancy the traditional greeting a lot more than unmarrieds, although there is virtually no difference in the views of those with children in the home and those who don’t have children living with them
  • 91% of Republicans and 70% of adults not affiliated with either major political party like store signs that wish them a "Merry Christmas," compared to just 58% of Democrats
  • Last year, 68% of all adults wanted holiday signs to read "Merry Christmas," while 25% preferred "Happy Holidays"
