Just got this email – and WOW! Do I ever agree! Be sure to click on the title of this post to watch the very entertaining – and pointedly true video on “Tossmas”.
Here is the list of Christmas-friendly retailers – that I will support. In fact, I plan on going to Bed Bath & Beyond with my 20% off coupon, asking to see the Manager, then respectfully rip it up in their presence and tell them why and that I’m on my way over to Linen n’ Things to buy that coffee maker for my hubby for a CHRISTMAS gift because they call Dec. 25 what it is – Christmas!
See below – and participate as you feel led. I feel better that I’ve shared it with you!
Focus on the Family Action’s 2008 Christmas-Friendly Shopping Guide How leading retailers’ messages rate Last updated: 11/13/08 We welcome your use of these ratings in your shopping decisions. As an additional way to help you communicate with the retailers we evaluated, we are providing the convenience of a petition which you can sign by visiting focuspetitions.com. Retailers will be presented with petitions – thanking those that embrace “Christmas,” and alerting those that have purged or marginalized “Christmas” that you object to the secularization of Christmas. We hope you will “stand for Christmas” with us and encourage the continued acknowledgement of this historic Christian observance in our culture. “Christmas-friendly” retailers– prominent acknowledgment of “Christmas” Cabela’s Crate&Barrel Dillard’s Eddie Bauer JCPenney Kohl’s
