"Happy Christmas" gained wide usage in the late 19th century, and is still common in the United Kingdom and Ireland. One reason may be the alternative meaning, still current there, of "merry" as "tipsy" or "drunk". Queen Elizabeth II is said to prefer "Happy Christmas" for this reason. In American poet Clement Moore's "A Visit from St. Nicholas" (1823), the final line, originally written as "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night", has been changed in many editions to "Merry Christmas to all", perhaps indicating the relative popularity of the phrases in the United States.

A great capture here Jose. Yes, in the UK we use both Merry Christmas and Happy Christmas inter-mixed. I tend to say Merry Christmas when I greet and Happy Christmas when I give a present etc but I don't think there are firm rules on this.

Wishing you and yours, A Very Merry/Happy Christmas and a Happy new Year.
