    Is everyone talking about the green and red borders? I didn't see them until I made the change at the bottom of the page.

    Kind of festive!

    If you look at the top of the screen, you should see "Happy Holidays" too.

    Yes, it's really neat to have this seasonal change.

    Funny I went to sign in one day and it locked up so I tried it again about 1/2 hour later and had the Happy Holidays. I'm with Abby I kinda miss the Merry Christmas but happy holidays is okay too. Some times I think we are way to worried about being politically correct.To each his own. Er I mean to each his/her own.

    I liked it better the way it was to begin with:

    Marry Christmas
    Happy Holidays

    Could be there are some non-Christians that don't want to see Merry Christmas. I have a few Jewish friends and also some of

    various other religions. On Facebook there are some arguing about what phrase they want to see used. Happy Holidays is

    probably designed to avoid those arguments.

    Well, after all, it is Christmas, ya know. Other religeous celebrations are happening too, but not on Dec 25th!!! So it should be Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays..IMHO..:o

    Well, there's Hanukkah and Kwanzaa that happen this month as well as Christmas. I don't think December 25th was specifically mentioned.

    I think they are trying not to alienate anyone who posts on any of the forums here. Just my take on it. :o

    Yes, I agree that it is appropriate that no one should be left out but I feel left out if only Happy Holidays is the only phrase I see or hear as I am a Christian and we Christians are celebrating Christ's birthday. It's ok with me if all the other religions or the atheist/agnostic population is lumped together as "Happy Holidays". I'm old enough to remember when all we celebrated was Christmas! Those were the good old days when everyone was not concerned with being "politically correct".

    Blessings,
