A Joyous Holiday Season and Happy New Year to one and all!

December 13, 2023 9:41 pm

Soon we’ll be sitting by the fireplace, enjoying time with our families and friends while watching the snow fall outside. But there’s one tradition that often gets misunderstood during this time of year. It’s wishing people “Happy Holidays.” Many think that using this term is recent and modern, without a tradition of its own. However, the phrase itself has a long and treasured history.

Contrary to popular belief, the term, “Happy Holidays” in United States goes back as far as the 1840s. In fact, the December 25, 1843 issue of the New York Herald and the New York Daily Tribune ran a poem entitled, “The Christmas Holidays, that contained the  phrase. How many times do you think “Happy Holidays” is said every December?

And speaking of long and treasured history, in 2024 we’ll be celebrating our 60th year of creating success stories for b2b clients.

Seasons Greetings and a Happy New Year from your friends at Delia Associates.
