With Christmas just around the corner, there’s a new reason to celebrate.
According to a report in The Times, the National Association of Realtors is calling for the name of the holiday “Holiday” to be changed to “Christmas” in a bid to get rid of the negative connotations associated with Christmas.
It comes amid an increasing trend to call Christmas “Holidays” as more and more businesses use it as a generic term for any day other than the birthdays of Jesus Christ, John the Baptist and Mary, according to The Times.
In January, the NAR had a meeting to discuss this trend.
It decided that the holiday should be called Christmas instead of “Holistic” to give a better message to consumers.
The change will also help the association “keep up with consumer demand,” the NRA said in a statement.
The association says the change will bring more positive images to Christmas.
“It will help give consumers more confidence to enjoy Christmas with family and friends, rather than focusing on the holidays as a negative experience for some people,” NAR president Bill Bickerton said in the statement.
A spokesperson for the National Restaurant Association said that while the association is supporting the change, the association believes the holiday is still the right name for the holiday.
“We believe that ‘Holistic’ is the best name to call it, and we are working with retailers and retailers to make sure they adopt the best possible name to promote the holiday,” said Jessica Dusenbery, spokesperson for NRA’s national restaurant association.
“The word ‘Christmas,’ and the association’s name, is appropriate, appropriate and appropriate.
That’s the way it is, we’re proud of that.”
