Shops targeted over Christmas cards!

Whatever next! :rolleyes:
Police were investigating after a number of shops were targeted in a campaign to stop them selling Christmas cards early.

Three charity shops and a newsagents in Headingley, Leeds, have received letters threatening attacks on their premises if they put cards on sale before November 1.


The writer claims to speak for the "Movement for the Containment of Xmas". :rolleyes:


One shop has already had its lock glued up.


Clive Barker, manager of the Oxfam shop in Otley Road, said the letter was posted through his letterbox on Monday evening.

He said: "It is very odd. Every morning I wonder if I am going to be able to open up or will the lock be glued up. We are not going to take our cards down as we are a charity and we raise money for all the Oxfam projects.


"The cards are important for our fundraising. Like the rest of the High Street there are Christmas cards on display as early tasters. Four shops have been targeted and I just hope that nothing comes of it. The police say they are treating it very seriously and have taken the letter for fingerprints."

The letter states: "This is a very polite but very serious reminder not to display Xmas cards until 1st Nov. We will put super glue into your locks if you do. Peace and goodwill.' :eek: :eek: :eek:


The lock on the mental health charity shop Mind on St Michael's Road has been glued.


A police spokesman confirmed they had received complaints and were investigating.

Christmas 'tis nowt but pagaenism anyway and has nothing to do with Jesus whom was really born approx. in October and NEVER in December!

The months ran between the middles of each month so Jesus would have been born some time between mid October and Mid November

Obviously the sheep wouldn't be out in the fields in December...they would have got bloomin cold as snow was a common occurance there at that time.

I don't know why they don't admit to Xmas having it's roots in Paganism and have done with it...thought Christians were supposed to be honest???
