Why do stores that sell Christmas items call them “Holiday”?

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Tommy asked:

I remember one year I went to buy some rapping paper and Christmas lights and everything there said “holiday” on it. Even the Christmas trees were called “holiday trees.”

When I look at comercials that have someone putting a present under a tree, and then saying “Happy Holidays” to his wife or kids I find it a little absurd. Hershey also had a section for Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, but no section for Christmas. Even now there are tons of items for Hanukkah and Kwanzaa but very few that say “Merry Christmas.”

Why would a store that is selling items to people that are celebrating Christmas not put Christmas on the package, or use Christmas in their ads? Who gets excited about buying “holiday cards” or “holiday gifts?”

About 90% of American celebrate Christmas, and something like 96% enjoy Christmas. I don’t anyone would be offended by a store calling Christmas trees Christmas trees. What’s going on here?
Look at the items Hershey sells under the Christmas heading.

I can’t find a single one that says “Merry Christmas.” Contrast that to the ones under Hanukkah that say “Happy Hanukkah “.

Is anyone honestly offended if a store offers a candy under the “Christmas” section that says “Merry Christmas”? Who are the people making these decisions?
I still don’t understand this from a marketing perspective. You know 90% of people are coming in to buy Christmas presents. You play Christmas music in your store. You seel Christmas trees, cards, lights, and all the rest. But you don’t put Christmas on anything you sell and instead put “holiday?” I don’t think anyone that does not celebrate Christmas is offended by having a Christmas tree called a Christmas tree or a piece of candy that you can buy that says “Merry Christmas.”

veggie_burger93 asked:

We celebrate Christmas, do they? Is it the same?; what are their traditions?; do they gift?; do they spend it with family?; do they have like Hanukkah and Kwanzaa too?
If they don’t celebrate Christmas, what do they celebrate that is like our Christmas holiday, plus answer above questions.

Thanks : )

Why is Christmas more commercialized than any other holiday around this time?

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

Charlie_Watts asked:

I see so many people buy all these gifts with Christmas in mind and stuff like that – how come advertisers don’t promote Hanukkah (sp?) or Ramadan or Kwanzaa or even Yuletide? I celebrate Christmas, but not until January 7 (and people don’t extend Christmas for those who believe in the Julian calendar, do they?). Do some people value their holidays with more respect than commercialism? What gives?

Tell me how you feel about this Christmas Poem-It might make you think twice?

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

It’s been a while……….. asked:

T’was the month before Christmas
When all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying
Nor taking a stand.
See the PC Police had taken away,
The reason for Christmas –
No one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing,
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say
December 25th is just a “Holiday”.
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod S
Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Targets were hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears
You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate “Winter Break” under your “Dream Tree”
Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully,
Choose what you say
Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,
Not Happy Holiday!
I know the poem sucks-Don’t you think it’s time to get back to what Christmas is all about?
When we start eliminating Christmas and it’s true meaning from schools & society then it will be forgotten.
I posted it in hopes that maybe it will make us stop and think and do the right thing.
