Exactly. If we are not allowed to say Merry Christmas, then they should not say Happy Eid al-Adha". Keep it at Happy Holidays and be done with it.

Some of you make me sick with your idiotic comments. I am not Muslim nor am I a Christian. We are all Americans, regardless of our race or religion!! We were all foreigners at one time! I think to single out a religion was wrong..saying happy holidays would be good enough.

Nobody can include the word "Christmas" in their ads but lets be selective. What a load of crap.
Forget all of the retailers this holiday season and spend time with your family, help out at a charity, or find some meaningful cause to spend your cash on.
People are suffering on our soil and no amount of cheap Chinese junk under the Christmas tree is going to alleviate that.

As a Christian I cannot support a business that supports terrorists who want to kill us all, so no more Best Buy for me.

Yes, this is America, and anyone can say what they wish, and.....they can also suffer the consequences.

Best Buy can go to hell. All the blood that's been spilled and the lives sacrificed for One Nation Under God. Not some false god.

Who wants to picket those bunch of traitors? Let's get up some signs and march Friday!!!

barack oboyma will now have to go over to the Mideast and apologize for the actions of Best Buy. No stimulus money for you. Don't forget to bow low, oboyma

I think that its a shame that certain companies would go out of their way not to "offend" or leave out various cultures. Politically correct has gone too far!

I agree. Politically correct is costing us basic freedoms.

I am Jewish. I have Muslim friends. From now on I will be shopping at Best Buy. This is America. No one should ever be excluded.

Muslims are not terrorists. Most American muslims are no different from you. They have families and go to work every day. Just like you. They do not wish any harm. Every group has crazies..... I do not believe that all Christians are terrorists because some have behaved that way, bombing abortion clinics or in killing doctors.

This is just one more reason to shop somewhere else!

Best buy is a joke, and this just magmifies the situation.

Check your Best Buy Ad, this looks to be in a market where there may be a lot of Muslems. I'm in northeast ohio and see NOTHING on my ad.

I will never buy from Best Buy again!!!!! No matter how many times they apologize or if they include the Christian holidays due to pressure. I am boycotting Best Buy and will instruct the rest of my family to do so.
