Christmas Bracelets

By  | 

An Ohio couple has been swamped with orders for bracelets bearing the message "Just Say 'Merry Christmas."'

Dan and Jennifer Giroux (jih-ROO') came up with the red-and-green rubber wrist bands as a statement against the more generic "Happy Holidays." They describe that phrase as "political correctness run amok."

The Girouxs sell the bracelets sell for two dollars each through their store, The Catholic Shop, in the Cincinnati suburb of Madeira (muh-DEHR'-uh). They say they've filled phone and Internet orders from 43 states and have sold almost 15-thousand so far, nearly depleting their first two shipments.
