"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

(Agape Press) A group of Jewish Americans says its members are fed up with the war being waged against Christmas. Yesterday, at a National Press Club gathering in Washington, the group's president, Don Feder, voiced his organization's feelings when he declared, "Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation is here today to say, 'Enough already. If you're offended by a municipal Christmas tree or Santa Claus in a holiday parade or a manger in a park, get over it.'"
It is ironic that a holiday that contributes more to the economic success of businesses than any other holiday is shunned from even being mentioned inside the windows of corporate America. According to the article, 96% of Americans celebrate Christmas, so what is wrong in acknowledging a holiday that mentions Christ's birth?
(Agape Press) "Why would a group of Jews who don't celebrate Christmas care about the disappearance of Christmas?" Feder asked, anticipating the question from his listeners. "Because Christmas is disappearing," he proceeded to explain. "It's disappearing from our culture at an alarming rate, disappearing from stores, disappearing from schools, and disappearing from the public square."
Christmas is slowly being replaced by the phrase "Happy Holidays" which has enraged many customers who threatened to boycott against several large retailers. These threats seem to have been effective, as stores such as Wal-Mart, have agreed to parktake of the Christmas spirit. Probably a wise move, as no store wants to be this seasons Target boycott.
