Hallmark Hanukkah Display Includes Swastika Wrapping Paper Because Why Not

Probably an accident but still, Hallmark was selling this Swastika covered wrapping paper in Walgreen’s and while they claim the pattern was based on an old Chinese vase pattern they’ve still pulled the design from stores.

Of course, this didn’t stop a California Walgreen’s from using the paper to decorate a Hanukkah display before realizing how antisemitic it was.

“We apologize for the oversight and apologize to anyone who was offended. That obviously was not our intent,” said Hallmark spokeswoman Julie Elliott. “It was an oversight on our part to not notice the intersecting lines that could be seen as a swastika pattern.”

To be clear, this isn’t acceptable Christmas paper either. TC mark
