Don’t let the anti-Christmas crowd kick Christ out of Christmas this year

Companies are now working on their Christmas promotions. Let them hear from you today.

Dear T,

June is not the time when we think of Christmas. But June is the time when retailers begin making their plans for Christmas promotions — store banners, newspaper ads, TV commercials, etc.

Remember last Christmas when many national retailers banned the use of Merry Christmas and allowed only the use of Season’s Greetings or Happy Holidays or even winter holidays? Remember how some stores did not allow their employees to say “Merry Christmas” to their customers? Remember how Christmas trees were called Holiday trees?

There are companies which don’t want to offend a small handful of their customers by mentioning Christmas because Christmas celebrates the birth of Christ. However, they don’t mind offending Christians by refusing to use the term Christmas.

We could be headed for another year when similar incidents occur, unless we let companies know right now that we will not accept the banning of Christmas in their promotions.

Now is the time to let the retailers know that if they ban the use of the term Christmas, you will not be shopping with them during the Christmas season!

    This makes perfect sense, since shopping is the meaning of Christmas.

  2. LiberPaul Says :

    Indeed Jet!  I am on their list too (just for kicks, like Steve O) and I was gonna post on it, but alas, the early-bird got the worm. 

    It never ceases to amaze me that a group in the majority continues to claim victim status.  To me its just alot easier to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year…  I may not be a christian but I am certainly not offended when I get a Merry Christmas, so why do they get so offended about a Happy Holidays???

    And here I thought it was supposed to be Christmas In July. Silly me.

    You hit it there Paul- majority victims groups. As if people are going around setting fire to the “Merry Christmas” signage all over the place. How many ‘christmas verbage’ offenses resulted in prison time last season? See any ‘christmas hangings’ lately? That’s what I thought.

    Give me a break!
