If it is purely economic then why

do Christians keep INSISTING that Christ be kept at the center of it even for those who dont believe that way.
Retailers are, in fact, making sure that they make MORE money by trying to appeal to everyone by including ALL the holidays. By focusing on just Christmas they exclude large parts of the population, contrary to what you might assume.
I live in the south. Just about everyone around here is southern baptist. So imainge my suprise when I found out, while working in a party store, that we have a VERY large Jewish population! And let me tell you, they were a lot more forgiving for having to see and hear Merry Christmas all the time. There was a very small quantity of decorations and supplies for THEIR holiday and while shopping for it they had to listen to Christmas music. But they didnt complain!
I think more "Christians" should pay more attention to other religions. Learn a little tollerance, acceptance.
