Kindly tell me if it is "merry christmas to everyone" or " merry christmas everyone"?
Is using to before everyone or everybody considered incorrect?

    They're both correct. But I would punctuate as follows:

    "Merry Christmas to everyone!"
    "Merry Christmas, everyone!"

    Also: "I wish a merry Christmas to everyone." In this case, you need the word "to" because it's not a direct address (you're not talking directly to "everyone").
