You can't say "Merry Christmas" because some folks don't celebrate

You can't say "Happy Holidays" because some folks aren't off or don't
hold anything to be holy (holidays is a contraction of "holy days").

You can't say "Season's Greetings" because maybe someone's favorite
season isn't winter and they don't like being greeted by the season.

You can't say "Have a Happy Day" because this time of the year can be
pretty depressing for some people.

So you're left with "Have a Day".

Have a day,
