Another Front In The War On Christmas

I am outraged! It's Saturday afternoon, and there isn't a lot on TV for adults - it is thus that I landed on KSCI Channel 18, which is a local foreign language station. Today they are running a Hindi-themed show in English, SHOWBIZ INDIA. It was pretty enjoyable until I came across this commercial.

It was for some long distance service, and get this - they were saying you should sign up in time for "this festive season."

This Festive Season!

Obviously the War On Christmas has filtered down to the smallest stations! There is no time to lose. We must now do... well, whatever we do to preserve our treasured Christmas traditions. Call your local Hindi station now and demand that they directly refer to Christmas when they talk about this time of the year. 

While your at it, don't let your Jewish friends off the hook.

Or you could just change the channel.

Let the Hindus have their fun too during "this festive season" without referring to Jesus.

Let the Jews celebrate Hanukkah.

And also, let the Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Why is Christmas such a bad thing to you? I get your "point", but it all comes down to this:

Merry Christmas!

Right here in the US of A.

Worship as you will, or not, but don't try and take away Christmas from America.

Ain't gonna happen.

So in other words, it's okay for people to not celebrate Christmas, as long as we remember they're not Americans.

If you lived in Australia, The Chaser Team would probably be all over that by now... If you don't know what I mean, Youtube search "The chasers" with "Ad-road-test". There are advantages to broadcasting on a station that isn't funded though commercials ;-)
