Greeting of happiness often used in the time around late December (Christmas time). It implies a desire for a merry time and an enjoyable holiday.

It may or may not be followed by "Have a happy new year".

After this period of happy days people would sink back into their grouchy old normal personalities. Yes I'm talking to you Ebeneezer Scrooge!
