These girls were told to can the Christmas carols.
Christmas is offensive. At least a WinCo grocery store in Vancouver, Washington, was afraid that a pair of little girls would “offend” customers if they sang Christmas carols outside the store. So they told the two tykes to take a hike.
The two girls, Ayla Bascom and Kaitlyn Manseau, started singing songs outside the grocery store including both secular and religious songs, such as “Jingle Bell Rock” and “Silent Night.” But the store managers got all afraid of “offending” customers with the songs.
“(The store said) our policy is like we don’t allow carolers or something like that,” little Kaitlyn said.
“I was like bummed,” Ayla said. “We were both depressed that we couldn’t spread any more love and joy and cheer.”

The girls weren’t soliciting any money. They just wanted to sing a few songs and bestow the Christmas spirit on shoppers for a smile and some fun.
The girls noted that they’d never heard of a “corporate attorney” before but now one was telling them that they weren’t allowed to give folks any Christmas cheer.
But the Grinchery store… er grocery store… did eventually change its corporate mind and said they’d allow the girls to sing their carols.
It remains to be seen if the girls will go back, however. What do you think? Should the girls go back?
