It’s common to give and receive compliments during the holiday season. This is a standard holiday greeting, especially around Christmas and New Year’s. She wished everyone a happy holiday and thanked everyone for the great fun they had given her. Here are a few more examples while you wait.
What do you say when someone tells you how great you look?
When someone wishes you well or gives you a compliment (or the season), thank you is the easiest thing to say. “I hope the best for you!” Try to find the good in things instead of always finding something wrong with them.
The Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English says this, which is worth quoting:
People have been talking a lot this holiday season about “Compliments of the Season.” That was a very hurtful thing to say. At this time of year, it’s polite to say “Compliments of the Season” when you meet someone.
Here’s a helpful hint: The difference between a compliment and a compliment is that a compliment is something that makes up part of a compliment. Everyone enjoys being told something nice. Is it a genuine compliment that they’ll appreciate? Most likely, the words “complement” and “compliment” will be on a list of words people often say wrong.
The answer to this question could be one of two things. “I hope” or “I trust” are acceptable ways to say “Merry Christmas” to someone. Both forms of saying something mean the same thing. But if the person is a business friend you don’t know outside of work, the second choice might not be such a bad idea.
Islam is the only religion besides Christianity that requires its followers to believe in what Jesus said and that his work on Earth was divine. Christianity does not do this. To say “Merry Christmas” and “Goodbye,” you must believe that Jesus is God.
