do you mean merry christmas as in "merry day that jesus was born" or "merry winter celebration in general"?
if it has even the slightest hint of jesus, then it is a religiously intended comment, and therefore insensitive. if it is meant secularly, then the christian holiday called Christmas doesn't really exist anymore!
and technically, wishing someone else a merry holday that they don't celebrate is insensitive no matter what. say happy holidays... if you really believe in integration and pluralism, then there's no problem.
either it's intended religiously or not. if not, then the holiday has no meaning!
