    With the holiday season is just around the corner,this might be a good question to ponder. We have Muslim, Jewish and Christian, clients we do business with, no Hindu’s , we refuse to do business with them.So, if you send out holiday cards to your client base , do you send a holiday card out saying happy holidays, or do you send all clients regardless of cultural considerations, a Christmas card.

    I would question the blanket Christmas card approach,as bad business if you have a multi-cultural client base.

    Happy Holidays for me avoids any unnecessary problems.

    I am working on getting a picture together with me in a Santa costume and my guys in Elf costumes. I am gonna sit on the cab of my truck with reins in my hands and have the guys in the bed surrounded by gift wrapped cardboard boxes. the only problem I am having is getting 8 plastic reindeer cheap. if I can get it done, I will send this to my customers saying happy holidays.
    humorous and memorable.

    Merry Christmas.

    "Happy Holidays" is for the gutless.
