Fox's War on Christmas

Fox is selling these "Holiday Ornaments", including one for the O'Reilly Factor.

The problem? Bill O'Reilly's latest pet peeve is what he calls the "War on Christmas", a major part of which is the substitution of the word "holiday" for "Christmas", as in Walmart greeters being instructed to say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas", and Boston renaming their Christmas tree a "Holiday tree".

So why is Fox selling Christmas ornaments labeled "holiday" ornaments? Either somebody at Fox is asleep at the switch, or somebody in the advertising department had a brainstorm for getting their products extra attention.

Update: Victory is Swift. Fox has already changed their catalogue. The "Holiday Ornaments" are now "Christmas Ornaments".
