Many well-known shops appear to be taking a stand this year. Some shops have opted to close their doors altogether for Thanksgiving. Many more establishments are catching on to the idea of hanging Christmas decorations straight after Thanksgiving, ushering in the season of jingles.
There was a time when the phrase “Merry Christmas” was frowned upon in professional settings, particularly shops. This was mostly due to attempts by politics and general retailers to evade public and press scrutiny. It is fairly uncommon to discover businesses skirting language and sensitive terms in order to keep the public pleased and their sales rates up.
This year, there must be something in the air because there are multiple retailers that are doing their part to change the game.
Retailers across the world are gearing up with their holiday cheer to cheerfully supply the public with their needs.
“Merry Christmas” is certainly a term that loving Christians love to see. Well, a Merry Christmas it will be, with the help of major retailers such as Hobby Lobby, Nordstrom, and Home Depot are stepping out on faith with their holiday promotions and joyful greetings. Some stores have reportedly played lovely Christian music as well while sticking to the biblical script and shutting down for rest days on Sundays. Belk is another store that is in the Christmas spirit, they have been proudly greeting their customers with a “Merry Christmas,” as well.
10 major retailers have gladly taken a stand and greeted their customers with a “Merry Christmas.” Walmart is another Christmas loving store that has actually received a five-star rating from the American Family Association. Bass Pro Shops is a gun shop that celebrates and promotes Chrismas. They also have been promoted by the American Family Association.
Along with Macy’s and JCPenny has gotten in on the holiday action too. Macy’s hosts a great holiday parade year after year.
While JCPenny’s has the wonderful Ellen Degeneres hosting some of their ads and, both of these departments stores happily promote the terms “Merry Christmas.” ToysRUs is known for its notorious greetings and if you live near one that is still in business you should stop by and spread some holiday cheer.
It is very nice to see a change occurring right before the eyes of the world. People are resonating with this adjustment in a very positive fashion.
Holiday cheer is wonderful for uplifting spirits and bringing people together. It does really make a difference to be greeted by a joyous “Merry Christmas” here and there. You never really know how many people you can cause to smile in a day’s work. These companies are definitely setting good examples.
