Walgreens Retracts Its Description of Christmas Decorations as “Holiday” Ones


Just one day after coming under a firestorm for selling “holiday” gifts and providing “holiday” shipping for gifts to arrive by December 25th, Walgreens has worked to regain their “nice” status on our “Naughty or Nice List” which catalogs more than 50 national retailers which either censor (“naughty”) or recognize (“nice”) Christmas.

Tiffany Washington, a spokesperson for Walgreens stated, “During the month of December, there will be greater use of ‘Christmas’ in our store and online. We completely agree that while others celebrate different holidays, we should use the word ‘Christmas’ to describe items we are selling for Christmas decorations and gifts. As Christmas draws closer, there will be plenty of messages in our store and online that say ‘Merry Christmas.'” In addition, Liberty Counsel has received a report of Christmas music being played in Indiana Walgreens stores in response to a directive from its headquarters.
We have moved Walgreens back to the “Nice” list and we will continue to monitor it and other stores. We are pleased with Walgreens for joining the growing number of stores that recognize Christmas. We will be monitoring stores and updating our “Naughty or Nice List” to help you support stores that support Christmas.
