Statement on Wal-Mart's Announcement to Replace 'Happy Holidays' with 'Merry Christmas'

Contact: Kristin U. Cole, 972-267-1111 x215,


SAN DIEGO, Nov. 14 /Standard Newswire/ -- The following statement is from Dr. David Jeremiah, senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, founder of Turning Point Ministries, host of Turning Point radio and television shows, and author of Why the Nativity?, an official companion to New Line Cinema's upcoming theatrical release, The Nativity Story.


"I am encouraged by Wal-Mart's recent announcement that this year 'Merry Christmas' will replace their previous, generic 'Happy Holidays' approach to advertising and customer service," said Dr. David Jeremiah, noted pastor, radio and television host, and author of Why the Nativity? "Last year the Christmas wars bordered on the absurd, and perhaps now we've turned the tide. I would encourage all merchants to follow suit with the world's largest retailer and recognize that there would be no season without the reason, which all people of faith recognize this joyous time of year based on the birth of Christ."
