As December 25th approaches, we've found ourselves saying "Merry Christmas" to everyone from our grocery store cashier to our family members. But have you ever stopped to wonder where the phrase "Merry Christmas" comes from? In a world where it's normal to say "Happy Easter" and "Happy Birthday," the "merry" in "Merry Christmas" is unique.
