ORLANDO, FL – Before you do your Christmas shopping, Liberty Counsel provides the Naughty and Nice List, which catalogs which stores are censoring Christmas and which are publicly celebrating it.
Liberty Counsel’s Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign educates, and if necessary litigates, to make sure that Christmas and Christian themes are not censored. Liberty Counsel pledges to be a “Friend” to those celebrating Christmas and a “Foe” to those who try to censor it.
You can download or print the entire list here. Liberty Counsel encourages you to incorporate the information on this list into your Christmas shopping plans.
For the last 14 years, Liberty Counsel has been tracking retailers and how they are increasingly acknowledging Christmas again. Years ago, Walmart had banned its employees from even responding with the phrase “Merry Christmas.” But after Walmart heard from its customers, it moved to the “Nice List,” completely embracing the Christmas season. Fortunately, many other companies have followed suit.
“As our ‘Nice List’ continues to expand, we are happy to report that retailers are once again recognizing Christmas,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “We are now seeing a return to honesty in advertising. If stores are trying to sell items for this special season, then they should call it Christmas. We encourage you to spend your dollars with those businesses that acknowledge Christmas rather than censor it,” said Staver.
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
