The Origin And History Of The Greeting, "Merry Christmas"
Nowadays, it’s common people to wish each other a “Merry Christmas” on the 25th of December, or every other day during Christmas season. The origin of this practice is a little unclear. But however, the term is believed to have been used by an English admiral in an informal letter, circa 1699. In the same era, the phrase was used in non-relgious Christmas song ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’, which is still popular up until today.
