Christmas It's The Law

If you're wondering whether it's OK to say "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Generic Holiday", the best thing to do, as always, is to follow the law.

In this case, the law is Title 5 of the United States Code, section 6103, which states "The following are legal public holidays: [] Christmas Day, December 25."

Whether you're Christian, Muslim, Jew, or none of the above, take the day off in the United States, Christmas is not only a holiday it's the law.

Merry Christmas!
