Great Debates
Why can't a season of peace and goodwill go by without an argument? Whether we're talking the appropriateness of Christmas in the classroom or whether eggs can really go into eggnog it seems we have a lot to debate when it comes the Christmas. We're not afraid to tackle the thornier issues of the season. But we're surprised at how many Christmas controversies we have been able to dig up. In this new series, we get messy with all of them.

The U.S. Postal Service Oct. 10 released a Christmas stamp featuring an image the Holy Family fleeing Egypt.

A ceremony to celebrate the first day of issue of the stamp took place at the Washington National Cathedral of the Episcopal Church.

These videos came to us from a variety of sources. There just isn’t any way you can see everything that everyone posts out there. But over the course of the season it is plain to s... [Read More]

Top Ten Christmas Videos of 2013
In a world dominated by phones, tablets and small screens the on-demand of Christmas is by far the fastest growing form of entertainment at Christmas. A recent televised Christmas special variety show by Kelly Clarkson drew about 30 million viewers and that was considered good by many standards. But some of the videos we show below have nearly as impressive numbers -- gained one at a time on screens of all sizes. Based upon views generated at... [Read More]

The Early Word on Black Friday 2011
Black Friday in a down economy should spell a total win for Christmas shoppers. Indeed, word on the street is that the deals will be fast and furious this year. While these aren't our final Black Friday prognostications we think the rumors about the following are solid and should be considered as you make your buying plans.

1. Smaller screen HDTVs will be dirt cheap. Isn't it funny what we consider small these days. Turn back the clock 20 years and a 25-inch tube television was the hottest "... [Read More]

santahat The Changing Face of Black Friday
The big news in Black Friday 2011 so far is not what is going on sale. It is when things go on sale. As traditional retailers continue to get squeezed by the 24/7 accessibility of online merchants they are struggling to find ways to gain an edge. This week both Macy's and Target announced midnight openings for their Black Friday events, perhaps changing forever the landscape of the day-after-Thanksgiving shopping.

The midnight openings mirror those of some major malls in select markets that... [Read More]

Christmas Tree Sorting Out the Truth of the So-Called Christmas Tree Tax
9 November 2011
Special to My Merry Christmas.com
By Jeff Westover


The media widely reported today of the seemingly incomprehensible idea of a tax of fifteen cents per tree for consumers purchasing a real Christmas tree. Rarely has an issue in the news about Christmas brought such a vociferous response.

Unfortunately, inaccuracies in media reporting and news outlets already spinning the story to support a particular political agenda has skewed what the real situation is. This is o... [Read More]

stocking Santa Smoking: Why is this controversial?
In recent days a Christmas story has unfolded that has just amazed me. It has been everywhere in the media, including on our sites at ChristmasNewswire.com and ChristmasFinest.com.

It is all about a new book of an old story. Publisher Pamela McColl has released a brilliantly illustrated new edition of The Night Before Christmas with one simple edit: she has removed the verse referencing Santa smoking a pipe.

That simple act has drawn a plethora of responses. Here locally, whe... [Read More]

santahat Remember when Black Friday was on Friday?
Walmart sealed the deal finally – they too will begin their Black Friday promotions at 6pm on Thanksgiving night.

We called it a year ago – after a flood of retailers caved by opening earlier than ever before – most at 10pm on Thanksgiving night.

This year it is 6pm. Next year it may transform entirely – moving “Black Friday” to early Thursday morning and done with so that folks can finally go back to what it is all about – Thanksgiving.

It’s madness.

Neiman Marcus Has Just the Thing for the 1% Person in Your Life

It is that time of the year again -- retailers are rubbing their hands with glee and anticipating the riches of Christmas sales. And nobody rubs their hands together or dreams bigger than Neiman Marcus. Right on time the Dallas-based retailer has released their annual catalogue of the absurd -- the Christmas book.

If you haven't heard of it before it is likely because the only people who take it seriously are the media. The media loves to point out the absurd of Christmas and nothing i... [Read More]
