Given that so many one-man Weblogs have optional skins the users can chose to change the color scheme and graphics, one way for online merchants such as Amazon and eBay to bypass the whole Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays controversy is to simply offer a choice of greetings for the month of December.
If individual Weblogs can personalize the appearance of their sites, this sort of thing should be a no-brainer for large operations with dedicated coding teams. It seems like an easy way to add personalized service, make each customer feel welcome, and avoid being written up in these sorts of articles. It also allows for more personalized gift/shopping suggestions, and creates additional demographic data about the site’s customers.
So what say, fellas?
