happy ramahanukwansmas


three cheers for wal-mart! in these bleak days of november, there is cause for celebration indeed. wal-mart is wisely choosing to avoid the “holiday” season and embrace the “christmas” season. not exactly putting the christ back in christmas, and charlie brown still might lament the marketing savvy driving the shift, but nonetheless - a step in the right direction. at the very least, the message of christ might be conveyed via the christmas carols being played via muzak in their stores all across the land.

when they say in the article that they learned a lesson from last year, do you know if they actually took a hit in sales due to the boycotts over the phrasing? surely they weren't motivated by protest letters alone.

i'm glad for the switch back, whatever caused it.

I saw this, and it made me happy. I heard today that Wal-Mart is about to report a drop in sales...I wonder what that means for the "Merry Christmas" bunch...

Way to go, Wal-Mart. It's a shame that they're doing it in response to boycotts, but still...

Eman, I will be in A-Town for most of the season. Call me or come see me!
