the "official" store of christmas

So the new slogan for the Hudson's Bay Company is that they are the "Official store of Christmas". How on earth can there be an official store of Christmas? Are they paying royalties to Christmas to be able to make such a claim??? Honestly people. Not only are they making claims they shouldn't be able to make, but now Christmas is even more commercialized than ever before.
Sure, most people aren't actually celebrating the birth of Christ anymore (they're celebrating the birth of Santa), but if nothing else, can they be celebrating a time of good will and togetherness and peace and all that? Nope, they have to go into debt and buy "more than they came for" at the official store of Christmas.
Bah Humbug I say to that.

I have hated that "More than you came in for" slogan since it came out several years ago. How much worse can you get. It is true though. You always get more than you went in for... at least I do.
