CANADIAN MINT'S AD CAMPAIGN DROPS THE WORD 'CHRISTMAS' (Ottawa-AP) -- As part of its holiday ad campaign to sell coins, the Royal Canadian Mint uses the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas." But singers in the television ads substitute the word "giving" for "Christmas." The Reverend Nancy Murphy -- an Anglican minister in Ottawa -- says that takes political correctness to an all-time low. She says it's time for Christians to take back Christmas. Canadian Opposition Leader Stephen Harper agrees, saying it's part of a continuing effort to expunge Christian references from government activity. But the mint insists it was a marketing decision, not a religious one, since December is a gift-giving time for many who don't celebrate Christmas.
