Target Backing Off Ban, May Use Christmas in Ads Later This Year

Remember our article on “Celebrate the Birth of Christ with a Boycott“, by Sara, As you can see we can make a difference. Christmas is important to many of us and we want the opportunity to enjoy and leave this legacy to all other generations.

Target Backing Off Ban, May Use Christmas In Ads Later This Year


Your efforts are having a powerful effect! Our boycott of Target is working! According to the New York Times, a spokeswoman for Target said it did not intend to ban Christmas and might use Christmas in advertisements later this year! In addition, Sears is adding “Merry Christmas” signs in their stores.

And here is new evidence of anti-Christian bias: A survey done by AFA shows that 91% of TV ads ban Christmas from their advertising. We want you to help us stop this banning of Christmas. The survey included one night (Dec. 1) of prime time programming on the four major networks.

As Bill O’Reilly of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News Channel said, “There is an anti-Christian bias in this country, and it is more on display at Christmas season than any other time.”

AFA found that the “holiday” theme was used in 105 commercials while Christmas was the theme in only 11. This follows the pattern in print advertising where “holiday” was used 25 times more often than Christmas.

These companies don’t want to offend a handful of atheists and agnostics, but they don’t mind offending millions of Christians who celebrate the Reason for the season. They find Christmas an offensive word.

We have prepared a letter to 24 companies which banned Christmas in their TV ads and chose “holiday” instead. Your one click of the button will send a letter to all 24 of these national advertisers. We know it is probably too late to change their ads this year, but we must let them know that next year we expect them to include Christmas in their TV commercials! Click Here to see the list.

  1. Thanks for the updates and email info Needles. You make a difference by being pro-active and encouraging others like me to take action also.

  2. thanks Needles for the update. It is exciting to see that our voices are being heard. The closer it comes to Christmas the more I miss hearing these wonderful words, “Merry Christmas to all.”

  3. Thank you, Needles. Not only are we being encouraged to make a joyful noise, procalmations for Christmas to be celebrated in the traditional holy day of its origin, but in promoting this, you as a nurse, are doing much to help restore the mental health of the corporations, companies and advertising agencies of America who seem to be out of touch with reality and in a tenuous state of denial, which seems to be pervasive in these end times. Yes Virginia, there really is a Savior born on Christmas day…and His name is Jesus!! Let earth receive her King!! Now we must deal with it!
