A NON-CONFORMIST IS YOU!
Feel free to read up on the origins and evolution of the phrase in a ton of places, even dictionary.com.
"Happy Holidays," in its current context, is just a way to wish someone well when a) you know they are not Christian and do not celebrate Christmas or b) they're a stranger and you have no context for what their beliefs might be. It is simply a way to be kind and inclusive.
It's toxic to pretend that acknowledging non-Christians is an assault on Christianity. It's messed up to dismiss basic decency as mere political correctness.
I would change the clue to something as simple as "A generic winter holiday greeting."
I can be tolerant of their views so why can't they be that way of mine? So I'm not going to avoid saying Merry Christmas and I guarantee you I'm far from the only one.
