Think I'm sharing your ad? Heck NO!

I was just about to share an ad from the Village shopping center in Allen/Fairview promoting the arrival of Santa when I noticed that the entire ad omitted the mention of Christmas.  You know....the holiday that puts the MOST MONEY in their pocket during the entire year! 

They can say "holiday" all they want.  It's free speech, right?  However, Santa is ONLY associated with Christmas!  If you want to profit from the Big Guy, get his story straight, retailers!

The older I get, the more it has begun to bother me that not only are retailers advertising gift giving earlier and earlier this year. (what happened to Thanksgiving?!!) But, they are also attempting to take a very important holiday (their biggest money maker, remember) away from me.  I resent that! 

And you know what? I am exercising MY right to Free Speech to say as much!

Bah Humbug, Village Shopping Center of Allen/Fairview!

Good for you! I stopped shopping places that wouldn't allow their clerks to wish people Merry Christmas as the customers were in there buying CHRISTMAS presents. A few of the stores came back around when it got out to the media when employess complained but most don't.

Hear, hear!  Hurray for free speech!  I love Christmas - but Thanksgiving is even more special because to me it's all about family, and being thankful.  I'm thankful that commercialism hasn't taken Thanksgiving way out of context as well!

Tammy, I was brought up on Christmas and it's meaning, I refuse to let it become a Holiday, like Election Day! I won't put those fools before God! And Thanksgiving should get the respect it deserves too.

Tammy, Thanksgiving is a very special for me because I am an immigrant and grateful to this county. Some people who do not know the difference think that all is given. I love Christmas for it's magic, but Thanksgiving has more meaning...I hope you will have a Happy Thanksgiving.
