CBS News and “Vanity Fair” just released the results of a survey asking Americans which holiday greeting they use along with a bunch of other completely random questions. The answers are interesting and surprising.

71% of Americans say “Merry Christmas” to people this time of year.  23% say “Happy Holidays.”  And the other 6% say . . . something else.

The deceased musicians Americans would most like to see in concert are . . . the full line-up of The Beatles.  Michael Jackson came in second, Frank Sinatra came in third, and Mozart came in fourth.

25% of people say their life is interesting enough for a reality show.

44% said if someone else had to raise their children, besides their family, they’d pick, quote, “some nice couple from Iowa.”  The celebrity couple that got the most votes was Will Smith and Jada Pinkett.  Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi came in third.

26% said that if one U.S. landmark had to be sold to a foreign country, they’d want it to be the Hollywood sign.  18% said Graceland, 14% said Washington, D.C., and 12% said Disney World.

 And finally, 33% say they’re worried about Google and Yahoo having their personal information.  14% are worried about the U.S. government having their personal info.
