Over the past few years, Liberty Counsel’s “Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign" has successfully put the “grinches” on the run. We have helped overturn a number of anti-Christmas decisions, including nativity scenes which were banned from public property, elderly residents who were banned from singing Christmas carols in their senior living centers, students who were banned from wearing red and green in their public schools, religious words that were censored from Christmas carols by school officials, Christmas trees that were renamed to “holiday trees,” and Christmas parades renamed to “holiday parades” by various towns.
In all of the above situations, Liberty Counsel successfully educated and reversed these anti-Christmas sentiments. We have been doing so since 2003, when we originally noticed a swell of anti-Christmas sentiment. (Read this sample list of just a fraction of the scores of the past Christmas-related issues in which Liberty Counsel has been involved.) In response to this unconstitutional censorship, we launched our annual Christmas campaign, pledging to be a “Friend” to those who recognize Christmas and a “Foe” to those who censor it.
As part of our "Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign," Liberty Counsel publishes a “Naughty and Nice” list, which catalogs retailers who either censor (“naughty”) or recognize (“nice”) Christmas. The list is compiled from information gathered by individual consumers and is updated whenever new information is received. Liberty Counsel wants to give the gift of Christmas back to those who support it. If retailers choose to profit from Christmas while pretending it does not exist, then we will patronize their competitors.
Liberty Counsel offers a Help Save Christmas™ action pack, which includes two educational legal memoranda to educate government officials, teachers, parents, students, private businesses, employees, and others that it is legal to celebrate Christmas. The action pack also includes “I Helped Save Christmas” and “I ♥ CHRISTmas™” buttons and bumper stickers and a window cling. Christmas is perfectly legal in schools, on public property, and in private businesses. Liberty Counsel offers free assistance to those facing criticism for celebrating Christmas.
