Walgreens Says "Next Year Will Be Different"

Great News! Walgreens Says "Next Year Will Be Different"

Send A Polite Letter To Kmart/Sears Asking Them To Do The Same

Dear Joe,

Because of your efforts, Walgreens has released the following response: "Next year, you can be assured our advertising will better incorporate 'Christmas,' and our holiday trees will be called Christmas trees. Unfortunately, all of this year’s December ads are already printed, so it's too late to make changes for this season."

In addition, Lowe's has released a statement saying they now refer to all trees as "Christmas Trees" and have removed all signs that previously calling them "Holiday Trees."

Your actions are bringing good results! We are hearing that many retailers are re-thinking their banning Christmas. Keep up the good work!

Would you please send the enclosed polite letter to Kmart/Sears asking them to make Christmas an integral part of their promotions and advertising next year? We feel there is good reason to believe Kmart/Sears might honor your request. We will keep you informed as to their response.

Additionally, and this is very important, please forward this to your family and friends. We need as much support as we can get in this effort.

Thanks for caring enough to get involved.

My people celebrated the Solstice long before you weinies from the middle east started trying to attribute your guy's birthday to the day that was special long before there were any hebrews.

Do I resent the Solstice being called Christ Mas? No, who cares. The day is now owned by the companies who sell you all stuff.

I celebrate the return of light on the actual Solstice and I have a tree because my people have always known the trees are the most important inhabitants of this world and the direct link to the greater world that we all join in our deaths.

So, who cares exactly how Walgreen's takes your money. It has nothing to do with your religion. And your religion has nothing to do with me and millions, even billions of other people. How bout that?!

Bet you don't publish this. But the Lady smiles on you anyway.

Let me start my response by saying that the type of hatred you display in your comment is exactly what is wrong with the current push toward eliminating Christmas from the "holiday" season.

The Nazis did it in Germany. The Communists did it in the Soviet Union. The Ba'athists did it in Iraq. It's called Religious Persecution, and the Liberal Left in America is headed down a similar path today.

As for your celebration of "Solstice," let me remind you of something: Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Savior of us all (if we so choose). Whatever you might call your celebration at this time of year (Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, whatever), it is NOT the same as Christmas, and should not be confused as such. Christmas, in it's true meaning, is a beautiful time to celebrate our salvation through Jesus Christ. The Christmas you describe as being "owned by the companies who sell you stuff" is nothing more than the secular world's way to enjoy our beautiful Christmas holiday.

This is a time of year where many holidays are observed. You do NOT hear Christians trying to have the menorrah outlawed, or renamed. In fact, just the opposite occurs. Christians encourage holiday displays that include not only a nativity display, but also any other holiday-themed displays.

You, Dear Reader, are a perfect example of exactly what is wrong with society today. You fear the reality of missing out on the salvation that God has offered through Jesus Christ, and rather than embrace that gift of salvation, you try to banish those of us who do.

You may pray to your tree, or your lady, or whatever it is that you pray to. You might as well be praying to yourself, as no one else is going to hear you. I, on the other hand, will be praying for you to the one and only true God: the God of Creation; the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; God the Father of Jesus Christ (may he have mercy on your soul).

God Bless You, and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
