Advances in the War Against Christmas

December 3, 2011

America has spoken, and the message is clear: we are tired of political correctness for the sake of those who “may be offended.”

The American Family Association published it’s 2011 Naughty & Nice list and so has the Liberty Council.

One day after the AFA’s threat to boycott Walgreens for blatantly ignoring Christmas in their advertisements, Walgreens responded:

November 22, 2011

Walgreens’ consumer relations has apologized for offending customers by labeling dozens of Christmas-specific items as "holiday" in its pre-Thanksgiving newspaper inserts last Sunday.

In responding to thousands of phone calls, Walgreens community affairs director John Gremer issued a statement to AFA, which says, in part:
"During the months of October and November, we make greater use of the word ‘holiday’ to include celebrations such as Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. But as Christmas Day draws closer, you’ll see more references to the word ‘Christmas.’ That includes the message, ‘Merry Christmas,’ which will be on the front of our newspaper sales insert on Dec. 25.

"We fully agree with you that – while we’re helping customers celebrate a variety of holidays during this time of year – we should continue and increase the use of the word ‘Christmas’ when referring to items specifically for the Christmas holiday."

AFA is grateful to Walgreens for its response and willingness to listen to customer concerns. As a result, AFA is suspending its "Christmas Boycott" of Walgreens.

Support those who recognize that Christmas is what keeps them in the black.

We DISH You a Merry Christmas

December 2, 2009

Here’s a wonderful commercial from the Nice folks at DISH Network.

I’m going to see about ditching my cable service and switching to DISH 🙂

After the video is done, check out the related video from Bill O’Reilly, who calls them Patriots for their unabashed celebration of Christmas.

Please be sure to send a note of thanks and encouragement to Robin.Zimmerman@dishnetwork.com at DISH Network for providing me with the imbed code so I can share their video with my loyal readers.

Lowe’s Celebrates Christmas!

October 17, 2009

Lowes is ready to celebrate Christmas this year.  I received their 10-19-09 weekly ad in the mail and was very pleased to see Christmas prominently displayed on the front cover:

Next to the photo of a 7’ Airblown Santa in the upper right corner of the cover, the text reads, “See our Christmas decor now in store.” 

This is progress from their 2007 debacle when they referred to their Christmas Trees as “Holiday trees”. 

Send them a note of encouragement and tell them you’ll shop for your Christmas decorations at Lowes this year.
