For years, conservative Christians have claimed there is a war on Christmas - arguing that too many people insist on using the monicker "Happy Holiday" instead of "Merry Christmas." Now many retailers in a push to bring in even more holiday revenue are opting to stay open on Thanksgiving to start their doorbuster savings before the Turkey's even out of the oven.

Today we ask listeners, is there a war on Christmas and should retail workers be able to enjoy a day off with family instead of being forced to work on Thanksgiving?
