Stand for

 This is a great website courtesy of Focus on the Family and Dr. Dobson for us all to go to rate major stores on keeping Christmas Themes for their decorating and use of The reasons for the Season- Christmas in the store. 

Personally, I agree with Dr. Dobson, that if a store has no decorations or no mention of Christmas they are not getting my Christmas Dollars this year. They need to get Holiday Dollars instead and I don't use those or say Happy Holidays so until the retailers can learn to celebrate Christmas and give our Christian Holiday some respect I will not be shopping in their stores.

Keep the Christ in Christmas and don't break the tradition...Be pro active and check out this website or rate your stores also.

Stand for

Have a blessed and Merry Christmas Season!

The war on Christmas has been really unfortunate.  We have to keep our traditions.

Mary, I just happen to be decorating my Christmas tree tonight.  I just finished putting up the lights and it's beautiful already. 

A couple of years ago, Target in my city asked the Salvation Army not to place the collection pot in front of their store.  I try not to shop there anymore.  

It's PC gone awry.

Merry Christmas, Mary. Christmas is the reason for winter.  It (and mountain snow pack) is what makes winter worthwhile.

That's my corollary for:  Jesus is the Reason for the Season. (Which I like a lot.)

I was glad to see Old NAvy is no longer on the naughty list. I buy my son's jeans there!

First of all be kind to everyone and smile! Then when you see a store that you frequent that has taken Christmas out of their ads go talk to the manager and ask who the best local and regional contact person is. Then man the phones and e-mails. It's way past time that we have taken a stand on allot of issues.

I agree with Jay, we should make it a point not to silently boycott the store - but to contact the Corporate officers and tell them why they won't get our business this year.

Thanks for all your comments, Jay that is a good addition to the website and more that speak out the better.

I think that the website and the store seeing itself being rated is good too. We should tell them to check the website too so they know they are being watched.

As always, power in numbers and Merry Christmas to all!
