Did Jesus say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

People complain about the war on Christmas–that is the much ballyhooed political correction of the winter holidays. Did Jesus say Merry Christmas? Well, of course not. Christmas wasn't a holiday in those times. But would Jesus say Merry Christmas today? From all reports, Jesus often mingled with people who believed differently from himself. It's not likely that he would go out of his way to make people feel uncomfortable. So, if the point of saying Merry Christmas is to insist on one's own beliefs, I'm guessing Jesus was a Happy Holidays kind of guy.
