My question

In mid-December, I received the weekly advertising flyer of a local store chain. At the top, the flyer said "Christmas Sale".

If a sale is advertised like this, with the name of a non-Jewish religious holiday explicitly in the title, is it permissible to shop at the sale, and to benefit from the sale?
