Say "Merry Christmas" for Jesus!

In light of recent news in the past few years of companies refusing to say "Merry Christmas", I have decided to try and do something about it! I will not be shopping at any store that refuses to say "Merry Christmas". Let us all recall the saving work of Christmas in that Our Savior was born to us. And He, the King of Glory, was born in a feeding tray for animals in the cold of the night because no one wanted Him or His Immaculate Mother Mary. His own creation did not know Him! Let us seek humility of heart for that reason this coming Advent and Christmas season. Stand up for Jesus Christ!

For wrist bands on this topic, see Operation Just Say Merry Christmas. Zobgy poll also shows people prefer "Merry Christmas" and are offended by "Happy Holidays," though Internet based polls are usually far from scientifically accurate.

I've just accepted the fact that Christmas has become simply a commercial holiday...

And since technically "Merry Christmas" shouldn't be used except during the actual Christmas season (from Christmas Eve to Epiphany) I've totally quite wishing people a "Merry Christmas." Instead I wish everyone a "Happy Jesus Day!!!"

soonerscotty is right. Christmas is already being celebrated in the mall.

I did hear that Kohl's is using Merry Christmas, but Target is not.
