At Christmas, there is no doubt that everyone will send or receive “Merry Christmas” wishes. Christmas has crossed the boundaries of religions and nationalities, and has become a festival that is quietly emerging and increasingly popular all over the world. But have you ever wondered where exactly the word “Merry Christmas” came from? After all, in most festivals in the West, “Happy” is used “Happy” instead of “Merry”, such as “Happy Birthday”, “Happy Easter”, so “Merry Christmas” “Happy” (Merry) seems particularly special.
In fact, historical records have used “Merry Christmas” since 1534, in a letter from Bishop John Fisher to Henry VIII’s chief minister Thomas Cromwell. At the very least, Europe in particular still uses “Merry” or not “Happy” to mean happy wishes. Of course, it can also be attributed to the problem of grammar lessons. “Happy” describes an inner emotional state, while “Merry” is more of a behavioral description, which is somewhat active, even boisterous. So as the meaning of the two words evolved, the use of “Merry” as a single adjective was gradually discontinued from the 18th century. The definition of “Christmas tradition” is to use the Victorian Christmas as a template, which is why this year, with the popularity of retro style, British plaid has become very popular.
