Well, perhaps I am one of the few, but I truly didn’t understand why this got to be a big deal. It seems to me that Target was simply being mindful of the fact that many faiths celebrate many different holidays. In truth it is more respectful to say Happy Holidays when doing business with folks that celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa and other options than to say Merry Christmas and alienate all others.
And I have to say that my Target experiences of late, not being a big fan of big box, have been superb. The service is knowledgeable, efficient, and very pleasant. They also have the best of bargain high design. Kudos!
