Is The War On Christmas A Thing? An Annual Look At The Question
Ironically, what seems to have happened is that about 10 years back or so, Certain Televised Bullshit Artists decided they could turn a dime—or, at least, stoke viewer outrage and sell a few deeply paranoid books to deeply paranoid conservative viewers—pretending liberals secretly hated Christmas and the holiday was about this close to being banned outright because that's what evil Jews and Muslims and atheists and elitist ivory tower college professors sipping their goddamn satanic loose-leaf teas were really after. And by Certain Televised Bullshit Artists we primarily mean Bill O'Reilly, the original master of Fake News and a man whose prime goal in life appears to be the enstupiding of America on ever-grander scales.
A study by Fairleigh Dickinson University found that watching Fox News increased the likelihood that someone would believe in the War on Christmas by 5 to 10 percent.
Mr. O’Reilly returned to the War on Christmas this year, but his tone has been triumphant.
“That culture war issue ignited and we won,” he said last Tuesday, later adding, “Donald Trump is on the case.”
As longtime unwilling watchers of Bill O'Reilly, we can vouch for the man's obsession with the air-quotes "issue." We have made a habit over the years of pointing and laughing when Captain Blowhard airs one of his War on Christmas segments about which retailers or politicians are saying Happy Holidays and why it is a plot against Joe Christian to make him feel bad.

If there's a war on Christmas then Wtf is this?
"655.8 billion, well above the 10-year clip of 2.5% growth and better than the 3% rise for the 2015 Christmas period."
