The PC morons are at it again. Merry Chrismahannukwanzakka.
At J.C. Penney, it was an “After Thanksgiving furniture and mattress sale,” Sears touted a catchall “Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving sale,” and at Lowe’s, the home-repair and hardware chain, it was “Let’s Holiday” - as if holiday were a verb. Office Depot similarly turned “gift” into a verb: “Gift smarter. The holiday gifts they really want.” Not to be outdone, Old Navy proclaimed an “Extravaganza humongous honkin’ 3-day BIG weekend sale.” The next day, Kohl’s broke the silence with its “Christmas Super Saturday.” Five days after that, Kohl’s touted an “Incredible Christmas 2-Day Sale,” and has continued to use the word unabashedly since then. On Sunday, Nov. 30, it was business as usual for the rest of the pack. Macy’s announced its “The More the Merrier Sale” - “merry,” as in, well, you know. Circuit City boasted of having “The Most Wanted Gifts of the Season” (what season, it doesn’t say). Toys R Us claimed to have “The Lowest Prices of the Season” (ditto). The Sports Authority: “Only 25 Shopping Days left” (‘til what?); By contrast, Kohl’s again proclaimed a “Christmas Countdown Sale.”Kohl's wins my money this year.
