Is Captialism Ruining Christmas?
"Catholics are seriously annoyed at the way the holiday season is changing. If you are among them, you are probably already annoyed at this article, because I didn't say Christmas season. It is Christmas, for goodness sake, so why can't we just say that? I received an e-mail the other day from Amazon.com headlined, 'The 12 Days of Holiday,' and the official greeting we get from store clerks is 'Happy Holidays.' In fact, there are cases in which corporate higher-ups have ordered employees not to say 'Merry Christmas.'
All of this represents a shift in the culture, no question about it. But who or what is at fault?" Visit:InsideCatholic.com - Is Capitalism Ruining Christmas?:
