  2. Hi Margaret, this is a lovely card. Just popping by to say your kindness shines, especially in the little things… Like just now, your note: “if you don’t get a card in competition, you can get one by request”. You’re so kind. Ok that was all. Merry Christmas!!:)

    PS I can ask here: what is the right wish? Merry Christmas or Happy Christmas?

    • Great question! Americans say “Merry Christmas” and British people say “Happy Christmas”. So suppose in other parts of the world it depends if their English is more influenced by America or England. Now you ask me why, and I have NO IDEA!!!! I just know that in America you always say “Merry Christmas” and in England you say “Happy”.

      • Aaah thank you! I didn’t know this distinction even existed. “Happy” sounds more dignified maybe VS merrymaking for the Queen’s English? 🤷

        • Miss Braganza, who in Real Life is a language professor, came through with the answer for us! “Merry” was decided to imply drunkenness probably in the Victorian era, so there was an effort to change England to saying “Happy” instead. But America never got the memo, so we still say “Merry”.

          • Oh that’s a neat bit of context which puts things in place for me. Thanks Margaret and Miss Braganza! Now for me to choose what my preferred way should be!
