Merry Christmas!

Here are some examples of Christmas- and holiday-related trademarks!

MELISSA & DOUG is a registered trademark in several classes of goods, including class 28 for “toy food items and toy utensils for preparing foods.” We hope to get the whole set of grocery items, and here is the Grocery box with all kinds of great generic goods. You have Organic Whole Wheat Spaghetti, Instant Chocolate Pudding, Macaroni and Cheese, Assorted Crackers, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Microwave Popcorn, Granola Bars, and Raisins.

One of my favorite Christmas places in the world is just north of my hometown. You can find Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth, Michigan. This store has everything Christmas that you could possibly want. There are even whole sections of bulbs related to professions.

DR. SEUSS’S HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL. My favorite Grinch is the book and the original cartoon… I’ve never seen the musical but I’m not a big fan of the Jim Carrey version, to be honest. What’s your favorite Grinch?

What’s your favorite Christmas movie? I think Die Hard and Shazam! Should be considered Christmas movies.  What’s your least favorite? Probably the worst Christmas movie I’ve ever seen is A Christmas Story. I just don’t get it! There’s a registered trademark for A CHRISTMAS STORY in class 11 for table and desk lamps and lamp shades.

Love them or hate them, they’re not going anywhere soon… HALLMARK CHANNEL COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS is a registered trademark owned by Hallmark Licensing, LLC in class 38 for broadcasting of television holiday film and movie programs.

There’s a registration for the stylized SAMARITAN’S PURSE OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD. This organization takes donations in boxes for needy children.

The Salvation Army has a registration for a mark consisting of “a sign with stylized wording "sharing is caring", stylized wording "The Salvation Army" on a shield, and holly leaves and, the configuration of a tripod stand and a kettle hanging from the stand.”

And finally, an individual in Las Vegas owns a trademark registration for KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS in class 35 for retail stores.

Everybody have a very merry Christmas and happy holidays!
