Walgreens is the latest store to return to explicit references to Christmas, switching its position a day after some Christian groups threatened to boycott over its generic holiday wording.
The American Family Association and the Liberty CounselChristian groups that maintain lists of naughty and nice retailers based on which stores reference Christmasapplauded Walgreens switch, along with several other big stores who are coming off the naughty list for the first time in years.

Here is a link to the list. Notice how many have moved from the "naughty" to the "nice" column. It really does look like Christmas is making a comeback, finally.
I will buy many things.....then take them all back and when they ask why....I'll tell them....They were supposed to be "Christmas" presents but apparently they're not. Sop next year....sell Christmas presents.
I LIKE IT!!!
Much better than sending an E-Mail. Do it with REAL DOLLARS.
I’ve been always confused by the expression “Happy Holidays” when only a Christmas motif was presented. No Thanksgiving (that expression usually is used before T-Day) no Happy Hanukkah, nothing. Just this inane “Happy Holidays” thing. I can just visualize George Carlin saying “Happy Holidays” like he did in his skit about “Have A Nice Day”. I believe each holiday should have its own day(s) and not co-mingled with others just for frenzied shopping for it.
This from the “Believe it or Not” column, clearly implying “I can’t believe these Jesus Freaks would make such a big deal over this. Get with the multicultural program you outdated retards. God is not cool in the 21st century.”
Bass Pro Shops has been great with their Christmas TV advertising and in store Santa’s Wonderland.
Not sure if they have anything you want, but, they definitely celebrate Christmas at that business.
Or short: ExMas.

Actually, God will be very cool, and very soon. People only have the luxury of ignoring God when their lives are going nice and smooth. The US has $15T of debt, China is arming to the teeth, Iran and North Korea are just about ready to test their nukes on our cites...yes, Americans will become much stronger believers in God, and very soon.

Yea, I’m more of the Peace-Now mindset, but they’re still certainly worth a visit. Perhaps they’ll have some lentils...LOL.

actually, insisting on calling Christmas by its correct holiday name IS multicultural.
I just got a junk mail Pier One catalogue which amazes me. This is the “Merry Gift Giving”season. While the holiday has something to do with snowflakes, fat and elderly white men with long beards, snowmen, the colors red and green, and happy entertaining, there is not one mention of Christmas. On the other hand, having a Happy New Year is perfectly ok.

If the Naughty and Nice guys catch wind of this, they may have to rename themselves to “Pier 2”.
We’ve always been able to play ball . . . .we’re smarter, make more money, have more assets, are in demand by businesses and municipalities, etc.
We just need to learn to be better street fighters. That’s where we’ve lost. Organize, threaten, boycott. Liberals can’t live without conservatives, they’re incapable to self support.
The Naughty List:
American Eagle Outfitters along with their 77 Kids and Airie
Gap along with their Banana Republic and Athleta
Gamestop aka EB Games
J. Crew Outfitters
Plow & Hearth
Polo Ralph Loren
Tractor Supply Company
Guess I’ll have to find somewhere else to shop for used games and buy my gardening supplies at Walmart.
I don’t know if it has helped, but, about 3 years ago, I started calling the companies who sent me such Christmasless catalogues. In a very reasonable and pleasant tone of voice, I ask them to not insult my holiday and give them a choice of sending me a Christmas catalogue that actually has the word “Christmas” on it or of removing me from their mailing list.
Do it. It doesn’t take long. And you’ll feel so much better.
Tractor Supply? Is that weird or what?
Who would have thought? TSC just lost this customer.
“Have a good holiday!”
“Which holiday is that?”
For added zing, point out to them that “holiday is derived from holy day!”
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
“Tractor Supply? Is that weird or what?”
My thought also. Why would an outfit that basically markets to the NASCAR bunch want to get involved with this crap/
