The AFA's Naughty or Nice List: 1-800-Flowers

Our efforts to debunk that American Family Association's annual Naughty or Nice list of retailers continues today with 1-800-Flowers.com. (If you're not familiar with this list or why we write about it every year, see our intro post here.) The AFA has put 1-800-Flowers on the yellow list this year, which means that according to them it's a company that is "marginal on Christmas" and "refers to Christmas infrequently, or in a single advertising medium, but not in others".

We've been taking screenshots of 1-800-Flowers.com since Thanksgiving. Take a look and judge for yourself:

So we can all clearly see how much 1-800-Flowers marginalizes Christmas, right? Seriously, I'd love to hear an explanation from the AFA about why they ended up on the yellow list, because aside from changing their name to 1-800-Christmas.com, I don't know what more they could possibly do to show that they're a pro-Christmas company. It's just one more piece of evidence that the AFA's annual protest is stupid on every level.
