Just heard today that E. Ellijay Wal Mart removed all their Christmas decorations because someone was offended by them...can anyone verify that?.

If that is true, then I am very offended by Wal Mart caving in. There are more of us that like and want Christmas than those that do not.

I doubt that. And most non Christians here could care less about it... Decorations are pretty regardless of your religion. If they caved to anyone it would be from Bentonville (home office)

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE! It happened yesterday and I confirmed it with a store representative that they had complaints from someone and they removed all the store Christmas decorations, though you can still purchase decorations. They said it was a sad day at Walmart, yesterday.

I usually just go to Walmart as a last resort. From now on, I'll just do without or drive extra miles to somewhere else. No need to worry about ME shopping there anymore, except to return several things I've already purchased and then go buy something somewhere else!!

UPDATE ON WALMART: Well the manager denied that they had removed the Christmas decorations because someone was offended by them. One of my neighbors went to the store early this morning. ALL of the Christmas decorations was gone including Christmas trees for sale and the tree up front for buying gifts for the needy. They asked the cashier about it and the cashier told her that they removed the decorations because someone complained about them, how upset the employees were and how sad it was. So East Ellijay Walmart DID remove Christmas decorations because someone complained about them.

Something tells me this is not being reported accurately. Some people need to get their tails ruffled easily.
Why is Ellijay supporting this company anyways. Ingles or Food Lion or even Piggly Wiggly are in Ellijay to get groceries. Wal Mart sells junk basically. Ssupport a store that treats it's employees decently.

Conspiracy theorists just love to create such ridiculous stuff. Would anyone be upset if Wal mart put up a display recognising a Muslim holy day? Probably. Same question for other non Christian holy days.

honey, it ain't jus round here thats true....it is a fact worldwide. His supernatural resurrection from the dead has given Him the right to say in John 14:6, "....I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Went to Subway in Walmart today. While Walmart was barren of Christmas decorations, it was really refreshing to see a Christmas tree in Subway. They lease the space, so they don't have to follow Walmart's regulations!

Looks like your elevator doesn't go all the up to the top....no one said Wal Mart wasn't selling decorations, but that Wal Mart took down their Christmas tree and all other decorations that celebrates Christmas because someone complained..
Now here it is slower, so read carefully or get an adult in the house to read it for you.....
Wal Mart received a complaint from someone that doesn't believe in celebrating the birth of Jesus and then removed all decorations that had previously put up in the store to draw customers into store to then BUY Christmas stuff/decorations/things.

I have no issues with you accepting that as truth. I do not. I don't believe I am going to hell any more than I believe you are guaranteed a ticket to heaven just because you do believe. I however support you 100% in your belief.
Leaving it as you say wasn't it. I just choose to live a different spiritual path.
