“Happy Holidays” has become the most common holiday greeting among the public as a part of any seasonal celebration according to some cultural and religious views among people.
To avoid the domination of the word ‘holy’ we may prefer another phrase called ‘season greetings’ so that the wisher may convey non-religious concept. This Happy Holidays 2010 Google Doodle assures this concept as it portraits other winter holidays.
