Well played Target, well played indeed.  Hopefully this makes people realize how ridiculous their war on CHRISTmas is!

    Haha! God bless! We’re all different even if we believe the same things! Embrace it!

  • kristi

    i’m not jumpin on the trendy train that is headed straight to hell. my holiday is spelled CHRISTmas!

    • MinistryofFear

      And where was the ornament made? In godless China!

    • JR

      Interesting. Mine is too. THAT MUST MEAN THERE IS ONLY ONE HOLIDAY! ACCEPT NO ONE!!! DIFFERENT PEOPLE GO AWAY! The power of Christ Compels you!

  • avnrulz

    Meanwhile last year they had the commercial which was obviously a Christmas commercial, and they never said Christmas in the commercial.

  • disqus_yMA6TiNyjP

    And Target led the way last year in removing Christmas from EVERYTHING, down to forbidding Salvation Army bell ringers outside their stores.

    • JR

      Maybe the Salvation Army bell ringers were a nuance the store didn’t wan”t. And if we NEED to go with the religious affiliated route: I bet there are non religiously affiliated ways that target allows its customers to give back during the Holiday Season.

      Also, Targets stance on Christian Missi … I mean Salvation Army is different from the satire posted on its ornament. Interesting how consumer culture allows for a company to sell a product, that makes fun on itself… maybe the HOLIDAY ornament isn’t a joke. Target just wants people to get along.

    I want one…

    I am a christian, I celebrate Christmas. But you know what? I have jewish friends who celebrate Hannukkah,muslim friends that celebrated Eid, New Years that’s celebrated by everyone, and it all begins with Thanksgiving. HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE!!!!

  • Kat

    Ah Kristi, hon that talk is why they hate us. Do we have to always focus on hell which if you read your Bible clearly states isn’t and wasn’t intended for humans anyway? I’m all for zealous belief but what about zealous love? and what about a little, nay even a lot, of real research? CHRISTmas ain’t what you think it is. Take the truth journey and sing a new song. And Happy Ramahanukwanzasolsmas Year all!

    • Schiphrah Stephens

      Kat where does it state this? I’m just curious being LDS my belief on such things is *slightly* different from most Christians. I’m just wondering as to the verses?

      • Kat

        Here’s a sight that gives key verses up front. http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/salvation_webpages/06-purpose_of_hell.htm Also do some research on the origins of Christ’s Mass, why the druid tree, pagan mistletoe, and so on. Check out MIthra’s birthday, December 25th! Who knew? Fun facts on the tree, Christianize anything you want, they did. http://www.christmas-tree.com/where.html My biggest issue with all this Christmas war stuff is this: Jesus (Yeshua as his mom called him) was/is a JEW. A Hebraic Orthodox Rabbinical Jew, born, raised, and died. He didn’t resurrect as a born again good ol’ American Christian. He never read the Bible, didn’t go to church, and certainly not on a Sunday as LDS’s know, and never celebrated his own birthday either, as that was a pagan thing too, cakes to the Queen of Heaven and all. He was likely born late October and you see how Jewish holidays can migrate on the calendar as this year’s Thanksgivukah showed, because they are lunar not solar and Gregorian. SO why do we say Happy B-Day Jesus and make sure everybody knows it’s HIS day and He’s the reason for the season, and “say Merry Christmas dang you all, or else!”? And the pagans and druids just laugh because THEY know the history and THEY know where their belief’s comes from, and “Christians” look like idiots tripping over the bleeding casualties of our “war”.

        • Schiphrah Stephens

          From what i’ve heard (haven’t done the research myself) He was born either in July or April. His birthday is celebrated as December 25 because they figured if they celebrated on the day the pagans do then maybe the pagans would be more willing to join. he didn’t read the bible he read the Tankah or Written Torah (which is where the Old Testament came from)

          • Kat

            Exactly! You are now more informed than most! He would have been born around the time of the Jewish feast of Tabernacles, when the Jewish people lived out in tents in a symbolic recreation of God coming to tabernacle or live with man in the wilderness after their deliverance from Egypt. Seems fitting! So why would we celebrate a day that was hijacked from another god and claim it for Jesus when He already had a certain season picked out to coincide with years and years of prophecy? If we re create Him in our Western/Greek/pagan image, and don’t recognize the Biblical feasts on which so many events future, past, and present hang, how will we recognize Him when He returns?

  • Jessica Knorr

    total fail. I mean no disrespect when I say Merry Christmas. *I* celebrate Christmas. If it offends anyone then that is their problem not mine

  • Mixxster

    When will people give up the ridiculous notion that there is a “war on Christmas”?

  • Tiki

    Just cause Target carries this ornament does not it the brainchild behind it.

  • Wesley Tate

    Title fail because Target IS politically correct. A couple years back they forbid their employees from saying season greetings to customers in fear of offense and removed the bell ringers for the Salvation Army due to a long standing solicitation law. Oh, but they sure as heck don’t mind the boost in sales in the name of Christmas. Noooo, not at all!

    • JR

      They carry blatantly Christmas items. Christmas cards with bible quotes, nativity sets, and Santa statues just to name a few. They are not profiting off of Christmas without recognizing it. They don’t hate Christmas, they are aware of a few facts that most of you (read:conservatives who don’t like to think) fail to recognize.

      There are people in this country that aren’t Christian but still would like to go to Target between November and January. Religious beliefs, or a lack there of, are a touchy subject for some people, and Target has an interest in getting as many people in its doors as possible. They took a stance to not disenfranchise potential customers by having a secular stance on the Winter Shopping Season.

      There ARE other religious holidays that have adopted the tradition of gift giving at this time of the year.

      Next year I am going to work at a retail store and greet people by saying happy Hanukkah. See how well that goes over.

      • Lee Penrod

        But that’s just it JR. People have mingled for years and years. Jewish, Christian, etc. All of a sudden you can’t say anything. Don’t like it? Tough. This country was founded on RELIGIOUS FREEDOM!!! If looking at something that another does offends you? Get over yourself. It’s not all about you. DON’T LOOK! Geez … I’ve seen blue and silver and star of davids for years and years and never thought anything of it even though I’m a Christian. Why can we not coexist? SO WHAT???

  • MsCafeen

    I find the fonts offensive.

  • DNavyBrat

    Merry Christmas, EVERYONE!!!

  • SandyLester

    Fantastic!!!!!
    Merry Christmas, everyone.
