Liberty Counsel Releases “Naughty and Nice” List of Retailers

Liberty Counsel

We are continuing our eighth annual “Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign,” pledging to be a “Friend” to those entities that recognize Christmas and a “Foe” to the Christmas censors.

We have just released an updated “Naughty and Nice” list, which catalogs retailers who either censor (“naughty”) or recognize (“nice”) Christmas. The list is compiled from information gathered by consumers and is updated whenever new information is received. Please print out the list and use it to decide which stores to patronize during the Christmas shopping season.

The list has been very influential in motivating retailers to acknowledge Christmas. So far this year, Best Buy has embraced Christmas and switched to the nice list, and Dick’s Sporting Goods has promised to change and include Christmas in their advertising. Liberty Counsel was the first organization to launch the “Naughty and Nice” list a number of years ago and since then other organizations have promoted similar programs.

We encourage you to report the naughty and the nice stores by sending an email to and we also encourage shoppers to compliment the nice stores and tell the naughty ones that you will shop elsewhere.

Read our News Release for more information. Or order our Christmas Action Pack, which includes educational legal memoranda to inform government officials, teachers, parents, students, employees and others that it is legal to celebrate Christmas.
