    If you are wishing them well I would use their holiday... to show respect for their beliefs

    Just like they would say Merry Christmas to me. I wish them good tidings on the holiday THEY celebrate.

    I say Merry Christmas to MOST people, even if they don't celebrate it. Regardless of what you celebrate, the message is still the same - have a prosperous holiday and new year. However, if I know that the person celebrates Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, then I will say "Happy Hanukkah" or "Happy Kwanzaa" per their beliefs.

    It would actually depend on who said it first and whether I was rushed or not. Usually I respond with their greeting but I greet them with mine sometimes in a hurry I forget to consider their beliefs and just get in a quick Merry Christmas.

    Always respect the person's religion, but they most likely will understand and appreciate "Merry Christmas" as well. When I am not sure if someone is Christian or not, I always use the words "Happy Holiday". At our Unitarian Universalist church, we usually have a combined Christmas/Hanukkah celebration and dinner.

    My friend Vincent is Jewish, so I make sure to say "Happy Hanukkah" to him and he says "Merry Christmas" to me. I think that every religion should be respected. That's why if I'm wishing it to someone and I don't know what they celebrate I ask then say "Well, happy/merry ____ then."

    Hanukkah starts tonight! Hanukkah often comes at about the same time of year as Christmas.
