Umm... I'm not sure its a good idea to boycott anyone who wont say merry Christmas... is that being Christ-like? Did Christ not hang out with people because they didn't follow him? Didn't he do the opposite?
Wouldn't it be more Christ-like to hang out at those places?

What do you think?

If you don't want to say Merry Christmas, then be my guest. I don't want anyone to pressure me to say Happy Kwanza anymore than I want to pressure someone else to say Merry Christmas. I agree with Spart - where's the Christ-likeness in that?

On top of that, business marketing strategies are very well thought through and executed with care and precision. There are a lot of people out there will appreciate the use of "holiday" just like there are those of us who warm to the phrase "Merry Christmas."

The opinion of some stick who runs a nonprofit is not going to sway a successful and focused marketing team one way or the other, but it may generate some press for those "naughty" businesses, which may just be counterproductive to what he was hoping to do.

some small business wont, but I've heard big names like (I think) Bill O'Riely do the same. He has many millions of listeners who would follow what he says.
