They want to make money off of christmas, but act like sickening cowards and are afraid to say Merry Christmas. Nobody respects a coward.
They are opening the door for Islam.

They didn't make any money off of me this Christmas. I kept my money where it belongs, in my pocket and Swiss Bank accounts

A Happy Holidays greeting is INCLUSIVE.
Merry Christmas is EXCLUSIVE.

I would think it would be more charitable to be inclusive. No one's saying you can't use Merry Christmas. Why do some Christians feel so threatened by this - if you are secure in your religion, why does it matter?

I have freinds of every color and religion. However it is a fact that Christians make up about 77% of all Americans and buy 99% of all Christmas presents. If you want to sell more, you have to market to that group of people, whomever that may be. The happy Holiday greeting is offnsive to Christians and so they buy less at Christimas time. Its a simple marketing strategy that retailers don't seem to understand. Look at the Chinese New Years. Nobody seems to have a problem with that, including me. I am not offended by it. I think its great. Political correctnes is for people that have no backbone,
and don't understand simple marketing.

Wow! So much hate! I am a Christian and I will not shop at Target. This is a personal choice. However, I do not spread hate and fear. I do not agree with what is going on in the world today. Each one of us has our own issues with society and see it from our own perspective. I am willing to share my knowledge with people who have open hearts and minds. I do not force my opinion on those who have already decided for themselves what they "believe". The problem that we have in the world today is not religions, it is not religious freaks, it IS HATE! Everyone should have the right to express their opinion, and share their ideas, however it is not ok to step on people. It is sad to see the anger and resentment that people within our own country have one another, and as a Christian it is sad to see that claimed Christians have so much hate. If you follow the BIBLE, the number one commandment by God is to LOVE. LOVE you neighbor, LOVE your enemy, LOVE!

Addition to the topic. I cannot speak for everyone, but I can say that I feel that when "Merry Christmas" is being replaced it is a sign of what the future holds. It makes me feel as a Christian that in religious tolerance, that there will be no tolerance for Christianity. It is a creepy feeling as a Christian when what you have known your whole life is being changed. It is probably fear that makes so many people angry about the issue, fear that our religion is being persecuted. If I was another religion I may feel differently, I may not like "Merry Christmas" being used. The point here is that each one of us "knows" we are right. Which leaves no room for compromise. That is my take on the whole situation.

one good thing about seattle is that it has muslims so the jews weirdos are on edge.

jews have been suing to get xmas trees out of public places for years.

i'll take middle eastern muslims over jews any day. jews should leave seattle and go to NYC or better yet israel.

I don't understand...I'm more pissed at Best Buy in making my beautiful neice work the late shift on Christmas Eve and having her get off at 10 pm. Happy Holidays has been around since the late 70s or early 80s. Back then it brought together Christmas and New Years together. I can't fault them for that and they mean no harm.

We don't shop anymore until after Christmas.
That way we dont' have to hear the limp wristed happy holliday PC greeting at the stores.

Its like paying to hear a good rock band, only to hear some watered down garden burger music.

Glory to God.

Merry Christmas.

Glory to Jesus Christ the son of God.

Who said they are selling Christmas presents? It is up to the buyer to determine whether or not they are Christmas gifts.
You sound like a typical religious nut that wants the religious way only and no one else matters. I like Target and will continue to shop at Target. If Macy's is where the religious nuts are shopping, I will boycott them. Thanks for the info! Oh by the way, Happy Holidays to you!!
I know for a fact(because I have seen them) that Target has switched the lyrics of the beautiful Christmas songs,of which I have heard since I was a small child,to lyrics only to advertise their merchandise for the Christmas season.Talk about blasphemy!And by the way,remember to keep CHRIST in CHRISTMAS!!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
