Is it allowed for us as Muslims to congratulate Christians in their eids? (I.e. Merry Christmas, etc.)

{This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion} Quran 5:3

Does wishing constitute to accepting their religion?

There's two different opinion on congratulating non Muslims on their holidays. some says it's Haram and the other said it's Halal but with conditions.

According to Yousuf Al Qaradawi's fatwa, you can congratulating them if you living together in peace specially if there was a relation between you and the one you want to congrats. like work or friendship relation. and it's one of the good manners that Islam does not prevent it. Allah says: "

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ " الممتحنة.

also The European council for fatwa and research said it's Halal as well.
