We live in a world where it is now politically incorrect to wish someone a Merry Christmas. Instead, we are strongly encouraged to say Happy Holidays. I’m still going to say Merry Christmas, it’s what I do, how I roll. I don’t say it to offend anyone. I’m being nice, not ignorant.

A perfume company however, is marketing their holiday perfume, the Flowerbomb in a bottle shaped as a hand grenade. They went through the trouble of saying Happy Holidays in the ad, but missed the fact that they ran this ad specifically for the week in which we recognize Remembrance Day. Not to mention that we are currently in a time of war.

Why bother with the Happy Holidays? Why cover your ass in one move and then shoot yourself in the foot with another?
