Seasons Greetings?

Do you wish someone "Happy Chanukah" in the same way you wish someone "Merry Xmas"? I have met some Jewish friends on my travels, and I wish to send them seasons greetings. But I'm unsure what to write. Thank you.

The Aish Rabbi Replies:

If you'd like to send your Jewish friends greeting cards, they should say "Happy Holidays" or "Happy Chanukah" - but not the name of other holidays like Xmas, Ramadan or Kwanzaa.

To make your life easier, many Jewish sites provide free, online holiday greeting cards.
