War On Christmas Ad - My9 New Jersey

War On Christmas Ad

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - A new ad running in New Jersey and New York is targeting the war on Christmas. The ad features a happy little girl named Amy sitting by a Christmas tree while an announcer states, “This is Amy, she lives in America. She’s free to smile to show she’s happy. Everyone is okay with this. Amy is a Christian. She’s also free to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ to show she’s happy.” Then at the end of the ad there is the sound of a child screaming and something breaking and Amy begins to giggle. Then the ad ends.

Some people feel like they have missed the message since the ad ends so abruptly.

Lee Kundrat created the ad for Saint Mary’s Church in Barnegat, New Jersey. He talked about why they left viewers hanging at the end. “What there is, is a deliberate effort by people, this is not speculation, but fact, to remove Christmas from the public square and replace it with holiday,” he said.

Kundrat also discussed how they were able to afford air time to run this ad in one of the most expensive markets in the country. “We are very fortunate because we have very generous parishioners,” he said.

This ad also has over 35,000 views on YouTube.
