On the road, I was treated to a radio commercial (during Rush Limbaugh's show, no less) that boasted of the joys of giving "holiday" gifts. Grumble. Then, while browsing the aisles at Home Depot looking for some random parts, I'm greeted with this little nugget of joy:
Enough is fricking enough. Nearly 99% of this country celebrates Christmas specifically
. Whether it's the watered down Christmas-tree-and-Santa-Claus variety, or the more observant religious celebration, America by and large
celebrates Christmas. Do we really
have to edit the word out of every single advertisement
we see, read, and hear around us?
I blame the spineless simps at large marketing firms for this totally unnecessary exercise in diversity, and I am going to make it a point to expose every last instance of this stupidity that I see until Christmas has finally arrived. Feel free to follow along on my adventure
over on Flickr, and if you run across any "holiday" stupidity over your way, be sure to send it along
Let's fight to put the "Christmas" back in the "holiday" season, folks. It's the walk of shame for any
marketing firm or corporation that thinks they can edit Christmas out of our lives in silence.
