I would say Happy Hanukkah to you, rather than Happy Holidays, and I would say it in the same way I say Merry Christmas to my Christian friends.

I wouldn’t say “Maoz Tzur”, because I don’t know enough about Judaism to know what it means.

I have no problem with people of goodwill sharing their religious festival with me, and in turn sharing mine with me. The “Happy Holidays” crowd come from a recent social malady called Militant Atheism, of the Dawkins type.
