jesus was added to december pagan religious holidays to make theirere conversion easier by allowing them to use the same rituals but changing the meaning. this time of year was about celebrating thor and odin before it was about celebrating christ's birthday which most scholars believe wouldn't have been in december any way.

saying happy holidays is just an attempt to include people of other backgrounds besides christians in the december holiday spirit, not an attempt to prevent christians from having a merry christmas.

besides stores have been trying to co opt christmas and change the current meaning for decades, and they are winning in that regard, even most religous people spent more time looking for a wii u or a new tv than thinking about jesus and how they would get to midnight mass
