NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- Nearly two-thirds of Americans prefer the greeting of "Merry Christmas" over "Happy Holidays," according to a new survey.

The telephone poll asked 1,026 adults, "In December, do you think you should wish people" a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays? It found that 64 percent prefer "Merry Christmas," while 31 percent prefer "Happy Holidays" and 4 percent aren't sure.

It's an increase for "Merry Christmas" from last year, when 61 percent preferred that greeting.

The survey was conducted by Marist for the Knights of Columbus.

"For that vast majority of Americans who observe Christmas, this day and season are a time for us to celebrate the fact that God exists and is with us," said Carl Anderson of the Knights of Columbus. "Saying 'Merry Christmas' allows us to celebrate that fact with joy, and to share our joy with our loved ones and neighbors."
