Finally, a joyous Christmas feast is wished to all inhabitants of the city.

Saying "Happy Holidays" is not evil, it just aims to cover a wider range of people when you don't know what holiday they are celebrating in December.
I come from a very multicultural country, so it doesn't bother me in the slightest to change my language to be courteous and consider more faiths than just Christianity. Of course, people should be able to say "Merry Christmas" if they want, and there is nothing stopping them.
