For several years, the American Family Association has been publicizing a list of retailers that support Christmas. Visitors are encouraged to survey, print, and use the list provided below as a guide when determining which retailers to support. Attacks against Christ and his Church in twenty-first-century America are varied and many, and believers are invited to join the struggle for truth, not convenience. Become involved today!
The American Family Association has assessed up to four areas to determine if a company was “Christmas-friendly” in their advertising: print media (newspaper inserts), broadcast media (radio/television), website and/or personal visits to the store. If a company’s ad has references to items associated with Christmas (trees, wreaths, lights, etc.), it was considered as an attempt to reach “Christmas” shoppers. If a company has items associated with Christmas, but did not use the word “Christmas,” then the company is considered as censoring “Christmas.”
Note: AFA does not list local or regional companies. Only nationally-recognized companies will be listed. This list only reflects a company’s “Christmas” advertising and does not take into account other corporate policies AFA may not agree with.

If you hear of instances of hostility toward Christmas expression, please let us know. AFA is working with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) to provide resources for government and public school authorities laboring under the misimpression they must censor Christmas. You can contact ADF at (1-800-TELL-ADF ) for a copy of their legal analysis and memo on rights of seasonal expression at Christmas. We want to inform public officials about the law, and then encourage them to take a stand for Christmas.
