"Merry Christmas" is off-limits, but "Happy Eid al-Adha" is apparently okay.
Best Buy is raising eyebrows with a Black Friday ad which extends a holiday greeting to Muslims for the annual Eid-al-Adha holiday, or in English, the "Festival of Sacrifice," which coincides with the Thanksgiving weekend this year.
In 2006, the consumer electronics giant drew criticism when it began excluding the words "Merry Christmas" from its holiday print advertising, opting instead for a more universal "Happy Holidays."
The inclusion of the Muslim greeting has ignited a firestorm of criticism, particularly online.
