Holiday Villains

These are the companies being rather Scrooges  on Christmas or deciding to have Black Thursday sales and ruining people’s Thanksgivings.

Naughty List

Companies on the list have been fully reviewed and researched, and those companies who do not use the word “Christmas” in their advertising, website, and store displays make the list. Most of the companies have been featured before and are aware that AFA (American Family Association) is monitoring their approach to Christmas.
