    Stores in the boston area were putting up halloween and Xmas stuff at the same time. Kind of makes sense since they are the top two money takers for retail.

    Now that is a great use of an anti-Semite in a halloween costume!

    Hershey's is running a commercial with Christmas colored kisses, ringing out "We wish you a Merry Christmas", but at the end it says "Happy Holidays".

    FWOC!!!

    Nice. That's gotta hurt the pro-Christmas crowd. Nothing like a Trojan Horse Happy Holiday's bomb covered in a Merry Christmas wrapping.

    How long has that particular commercial been around? It's been at least 10 years. I can find one source that says it's been around since the mid 80s.

    Sweet. Apparently we have been engaged in a clandestine operation against Christmas for years.

    It runs much deeper than we might want to admit. Andy Williams was recruited as a major spokesman for the war on Christmas long ago....

    Ah yes the good old days when we were but a fledgling band of Christmas renegades, how far we have come. It brings a tear to my eye to think back at our fallen freedom fighters from days gone by but our numbers are greater now and with more retailers in our pockets every season we will be unstoppable muuhhahahahahahah!!!!

    All kidding aside, something that confuses me about the whole "saying 'happy holidays' is an attack on Christmas!" stuff is, that I remember "Happy Holidays" being used as a standard greeting between mid November and early January going as far back as I can remember.

    It's not like this is something new.

    It's not new. But it is something new to be offended about! Many on the religious right love to be offended and feel they are either being persecuted or are under attack.

    Mhmm. It wouldn't annoy me so much if they would just at least be focusing the attack correctly, particularly when it comes to retail using the term "holidays". They act as though it's some super-PC, anti-Christian attack, when all it is is nothing more than attempt to more people to buy into the consumerism of the season. Call a tree a "Christmas tree" and you're going to get predominately Christians buying it. Call it a "Holiday Tree" and now you've expanded the demographic.

    (Jer 10:3) For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
    (Jer 10:4) They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

    In this thread alone one can sense the War on Christmas heating up. I thought it would be light this year but I could have been wrong. We'll see once Thanksgiving is over

    Oh crap, he's on to us. Somehow he found out that the Friday after Thanksgiving is when we launch our major "happy holidays" salvo. He must have gotten his hands on our Enigma machine. We've been compromised...........re-group everyone.
