The American Family Assoc. released its annual “Naughty-or-Nice Retailer List,” of Companies Censoring “Christmas

The American Family Association (AFA) released its annual “Naughty-or-Nice Retailer List,” which tells consumers how companies plan to market their products.


11 major companies made the “naughty” list, which means products can be marketed by using the term “Christmas” sparingly in a single or unique product description, but as a company, does not recognize it.


If a company has items associated with Christmas, but did not use the word “Christmas,” then AFA considers the company as censoring “Christmas.” The list does not local or regional companies, but only nationally-recognized companies. This list also only reflects a company’s “Christmas” advertising and does not take into account other corporate policies AFA may not agree with.

Honorable Mention:
The following 14 stores also aren’t considered “Christmas-friendly” by AFA because they refer to Christmas infrequently, or in a single advertising medium, but not in others:
1. Best Buy
2. Starbucks
3. CVS Pharmacy
4. Walgreens
5. Whole Foods
6. Bath & Body Works
7. Radio Shack
8. True Vallue
9. Academy Sports + Outdoors
10. 1-800-Flowers.com
11. Cooking.com
12. Safeway
13. UncommonGoods.com
14. Fred’s


Here are nationally-recognized stores that made AFA’s “Nice” list, meaning they promote and celebrate Christmas on an exceptional basis:

Thanks for posting this Robin.  I have two reasons that I think the places that hate Christmas - other than its money - are being silly.  The first is not knowing or caring about the numbers.  And the second further below, is that it just makes the place ... stupid, intolerant and uncaring - with "boring" being the largest sin.  First the numbers below.  These I got from the official US numbers on US census in 2008 - and just did some math to give the total numbers and percentages.  But no, I did not change any raw data.  So looking below you see there are now more Muslims in the US than Christians.  Wait.  I don't see that.  Most odd.  Someone should tell our schools that there are more Christians than Muslims.  These numbers by way are those folks who self identify with a religion and are not the ones verified that they are on some church or anti church roster.  So the phrase self identify is important.

And aside from them being stupid fools who do not know or care about numbers and reality as you see above, there is my second point.

My Second Point - The US is drifting into Nothingness

I lived in the UK for three years trying to fix a plant there, and we did okay in that endeavor.  I had the factory and sometimes British Engineering there.  But in the factory, some days my Production Manager would come to me and say that tomorrow was a day off for Holiday.  I would not object.  But I would always ask "Great.  What Holiday is it?"  The answer believe it or not, except for one or two days was always (and say this with a British accent)  "We really do not know.  Bank Holiday ... you know."  Well, I did not press it.  But it seemed horrible that they have close to zero tradition, and zero caring, much like the direction the US is going.  I am not an unreasonable person.  Honest.  I would have accepted almost any answer but the one given "We do not know and we do not care" - which is really what they said.  I would have been fine if it was for the date of the Beatles first album, or the day the Spice Girls got together, or perhaps the Queen's birthday.  But something must have value to these people ... please.

I feel the same in the US.  I hear that Halloween is a Pagan Holiday.  So?  I am not Pagan, but please do not fold spindle or kill Halloween.  It can be cute.  If I know someone is Jewish and I was on my toes, I have no issue with wishing that family Happy Hannukah.  If I had Muslim friends, I might wish them Happy Ramadan or however they think of things.  But this non caring, we need to kill our past stuff, is to me, degrading to human beings.  Human beings should give a darn about something.  And there you see, is my second point.  :)
