Tell Bill O'Reilly And John Gibson To Call Off The Dogs...'s apparently okay to say "Merry Christmas" again... WCRB-TV, Chattanooga: They're decking the halls inside this Wal-Mart in G's apparently okay to say "Merry Christmas" again...

WCRB-TV, Chattanooga:

They're decking the halls inside this Wal-Mart in Germantown, Maryland... Where a Christmas shop replaces last year's holiday shop.
Christmas carols will soon resonate throughout the store and a countdown to Christmas sign is front and center.

"I hope it doesn't offend anyone. We like Christmas, so we celebrate Christmas, so we're happy to see Christmas come back."

Last year some retailers replaced `Merry Christmas" with the catch-all phrase "happy holidays."

Now things are changing

"Sometimes the holidays are not Christmas, sometimes they're different holidays. But it's all meant to congratulate the season."

"So when shoppers come in during this season, what will you guys say?"

"Merry Christmas, happy holidays."

Aren't y'all glad that Wal-Mart has settled this troubling issue? I mean, it would be terrible to not get a "Merry Christmas" from one of their under-paid and non-benefit-earning employees amidst the 3.5 acres of Christmas tchotkes made by cheap foreign labor they sell, wouldn't it? (/snark)
