The War on Christmas Continues, I Guess

The American Family Association provides a list of companies that do and do not use the word “Christmas”.  I guess people don’t buy things for Chanukah or Hanukkah or however you spell it.

I noticed they misspelled “Dillards”.

  1. Sigh…. Once again, this is fighting the wrong battle. Where in the Bible does it say that consumerism must be "for" Jesus and vice versa?

    Every year I say this, but, I would make an opposite list. I would suggest that what is more offensive is the fact that corporations use the name of Christ to sell merchandise.

    I'm not sure if this is related. But, it does bring a topic to mind. This year may be the year I have to explain to my daughter about Santa (I really hope it isn't…I secretly hope she will be mature enough to figure it out on her own and maybe go so far as to understand why her own mom still believes 100% in Santa). I know so many Christians hate Santa because he is this consumer centric figure that distracts from Jesus' birth. But, oddly enough, Santa isn't that at our house. He is a symbol of the everyday man that is giving with love to everyone – regardless of who they are. I believe in that man. And, I believe in God and Jesus. I fully respect all the religious aspects of Christmas. But, I don't think I'm bad in also respecting the gift giving portion. For me, it's about love. It's not about getting the coolest, most expensive gift but rather the thought you put into it. This year, my daughter embarked on a HUGE gift and was wildly successful. I think my 8 year old got it when she said she didn't it want the gift to say it was from her but rather she wanted each gift to say, "From your Secret Santa".

    Sidenote: The Gap, Banana Republic, & Old Navy are all part of the same super christmas hating company… 😉
