What's wrong with saying Merry Christmas?

I fully appreciate the fact that we live in a world where different people practice different faiths. In fact, I support America's Freedom of Religion right. However, I cannot be a consumer of popular media without being critical. Season's Greetings and Happy Holidays are slogans used to neutralize the religious time. I have many friends of many faiths, and none of them would rather substitute genuine expressions with universal neutrality. What's wrong with saying Happy Hanukkah? Happy Kwanzaa? Merry Christmas?
