Do you feel wishing folks Happy Holidays is too politically correct?

No, I do not think that it is too politically correct because if it is said with sincerity then there is nothing political about it at all. If it is said with out any feeling then it is most likely political (A simple answer but a true one).

Sincere good wishes are always correct.

I usually wish people "Merry Christmas" or "Happy New Year". But occasionally "Happy Holidays" comes out. Doesn't bother me one way or the other.

I think it is a courteous phrase if one is not certain which holiday, if any, the person addressed actually celebrates.

I don't think it's politically correct. As long as it's said naturally. It just sounds really american to me! No-one would really say that in England. If it sounds contrived then the person probably is trying to be politically correct, I suppose. I LOATHE political correctness. It's getting ridiculous nowadays. I associate it with bureaucracy, and it frustrates me so much!

Don't be ridiculous. There are a lot of different religions, including lack of religion, therefore, to cover everybody, happy holidays is the best way to go.

No its fine. No point in wishing a Jewish individual "merry xmas" for instance ;P If you dont know what faith they are, why not just go the happy holidays route.
