I just checked the CVS, Barnes & Noble and Staples web sites. None of them went out of their way to avoid ‘Christmas’ (a gross example of which, IMO, would be a reference to “holiday trees”). CVS had ornaments listed in their ad circular as “Christmas” decorations. BN.com was selling gift cards that say “Merry Christmas” and featured a number of books with Christmas in the title. Staples is selling small “Christmas trees” (not holiday trees).
So in other words, I doubt the value of this list.
..and some of their so-called anti-Christmas stores aren’t even really seasonal gift stores, they are specialty stores. I’ve always thought AFA goes over the top, probably for the attention and donations. The other day they were complaining Chase Bank wasn’t putting Christmas trees in their lobby (safety policy according to a friend that works there) but they are loaded with other decorations.. still not good enough for AFA.... Political correctness goes both ways. (demanding you use or not use specific language to not offend a group sure sounds like what they are doing).
I’m a little suspect about the list too. Why is NASCAR listed as “against” Christmas? What are they supposed to do?
The only real way to tell if a company is against Christmas is if they start in with the “holiday” tree nonsense or take other things that traditionally have been called “Christmas” and rename them.
