If it is a store owned by someone who doesn't believe in Christmas, they do not need to say Merry Christmas to me. Just as I don't want to say greetings to others who are celebrating differently; not that I don't want to but am not sure of the traditions and cultures of others. Too complicated for my older mind. Senior moments happen quite often.
I boycott on my own, when a store does not treat me with respect when I buy from them. I drop the boycott when it is to my advantage, i.e. a sale price, or whatever.
Anyone can do the same if they are unhappy with a merchant. But at boycott takes lots of work and energy. As to a list, I'm not sure where that would come from. Hopefully, not a bunch of people who just want to cause trouble. This is a happy holiday season, for the birth of Christ. Let's not be Pharisees and make a fuss over nothing. I'll stay in the shadows and pray, just like Jesus told the Pharisees to do.
My God is big enough to handle this; he doesn't expect me to fight battles. Bigger wars are coming.

It always amazes me how many people will happily accept a paid day off on Dec. 25-Christmas Day on the calendar, federally mandated, but refuse to acknowledge the greeting "Merry Christmas", preferring instead to use an expression such as 'happy holidays'.
These counterfeits would never use that bogus greeting at Easter, Valentine, Halloween etc., or any other day of the year that is acknowledged with a designated name. I wonder why that is?

My brother was a cashier a couple of years ago and said 'Merry Christmas' to a customer, but she got mad and said that she's Muslim and doesn't celebrate Christmas. The manager made my brother a stocker, instead. He wasn't aware of the whole politically correct shtick, but now that he's older and wiser, it makes him a little cheesed.
It's odd how the atheists, far-left liberals and the ACLU get their ties in a bunch over Christmas, which has a pagan background - but they're quit when it's Halloween, a 100% pagan holiday.
Oh, the hypocrisy and shame!

Wow, you must be a very bored person to come up with a list of stores that wouldn't say Merry Christmas, just to boycott them and ruin their Christmas.. Try the flea markets for starters. Haha

I agree with you to a point. If a business is owned by people of a religion that doesn't celebrate Christmas, that one thing. But for a large chain of stores to tell their people not to say for fear of offending the 1% that would get offended and instead offend the 99% of us, then I would join the boycott. It is just stupid to bow down to a few fanatics. Thanks ACLU, and Merry Christmas.

I totally agree with you. And the morons who think otherwise, are just incapable of moral thoughts. Why is it Christmas? Because it is the day of Jesus Christ's birthday.. I too, will not shop at a store that refuses to say Merry Christmas. I have left a cart load of stuff at the register for them saying Happy Holiday...

Here we go again the Annual debate ,as it happens i have never come across any one who's offended by Christmas or by someone saying Merry Christmas to themSource(s): Muslims have no problem with Christmas and no Muslim would ever disrespect Jesus Islam forbids it

Garage Sales, flea markets and other high end stores like some Nordstroms. It all depends on the cashier, not the store. For instance, if I were the cashier, I wouldn't say that to you because as a Bible Student, I know that all holidays originated from pagan roots. Celebrations which originate from pagan ideas cannot be turned into something Christian. Therefore, like all other 360 days of the year, "thanks for shopping at this store, have a nice day!"

Why don't you just walk up to a clerk, and scream, "Goddamn you anti-American liberal, pinko, hand-wringing, bed-wetting Jewish Muslims!!!!!! Say Merry Christmas or I'll beat you until you're black and blue!!!"
They'll take you away. Then you can become the first martyr of the War on Christmas. You can be a URL: "FreeGOPgang.com."
Luke 2: 7-14:
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Why would you FORCE someone to say it?
PS Just for you ppl that think you are celebrating this wonderful birth of Christ and what not...you should do some research.. Jesus was not born in December. The date was chosen to coincide with the pagan beliefs at the time and the winter solstice. You would be amazed at how many "christ"mas traditions are actually pagan in origin.Source(s): Just my two cents
