What's So Christian About "Merry" Christmas?

All this Christmas madness by the Bill O'Reillys of the world makes me wonder the following - are we being bad Christians if we say "Happy Christmas"? I mean, "merry"? What's that about? Why are O'Reilly and his ilk insisting on that? I don't recall ever seeing it in the Bible - do I have a bad translation?

See Adam Cohen's piece in the NYT today (Sunday 12/4). Dear Fox News: Our country's perfect, fine, honest, hard working, admittedly not so goog looking and a little strict, but still real religious God-fearing founders hated the bleepin' holiday. Love, Crystal
