Macy's Complaint - Macy's Day Parade, New York City
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- I think it's disgusting and prejudice that at the end of the Thanksgiving Day parade, SANTA SAID, "HO HO HO, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!". I have been watching that parade for 42 years. SANTA SAYS, "MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!" For my whole life, SANTA SAYS MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! My children watch the parade and I think it's terrible that SANTA, FOR WHATEVER REASONS, WAS NOT ALLOWED TO SAY "MERRY CHRISTMAS!" I wouldn't have caught it unless I heard the replay on AM radio. How discriminatory! I'm tired of every business being careful not to offend everyone else except CATHOLICS/CHRISTIANS!!!!!!! IT'S GOT TO STOP! IT'S CHRISTMAS! No one should apologize for it being CHRISTMAS OR be afraid to say it!
Next year, I would hope you would reconsider all the children watching that show and waiting for Santa to wish everyone, a "Merry Christmas"!
I will not buy one gift from Macys. Not one!
