Americans Support Christmas Displays, Sentiments

Not only do most Americans, an estimated 96%, celebrate Christmas, but, according to a November Rasmussen poll, 72% favor saying “Merry Christmas” over “Happy Holidays,” with only 22% favoring the generic greeting.

Also, a Rasmussen survey released Dec. 10 showed that 76% of American adults said it’s okay to display religious symbols, like Nativity scenes, in public settings, compared to only 11%.

The December poll also showed 83% believe public schools should celebrate religious holidays.
