Will “Merry Christmas” packaging offend?
At this evening's Sunset Market, I will be offering holiday themed caramel packaging including "Merry Christmas", "Happy Holidays" and "Season's Greetings". Now mind you, my 30 plus years experience in marketing and PR, and the constant barrage from the PC crowd tells me NOT to "offend" anyone by saying, doing or mentioning anything Christmas. Yet I am a Christian. And proud of it. I respect and admire all of humanities religious beliefs and holidays. To each his own. I can do this, I have no board of directors or shareholders to be accountable too. So, if you are offended by my Christmas packaging, remember that I respect your views and beliefs and am stocked up with my standard Cheryl's Caramels packaging... Bet these "Merry Christmas" buckets are best sellers tonight!
