Christmas is not PC?????

Ok, now I'm ticked off.....on the radio while driving to work I heard a local talk show host say that what was in the past called a Christmas Tree Lighting in the city of Folsom CA is called a Holiday Tree Lighting this year. While it bothered me that any city would bow to this obviously politically correct move I thought well it's just Folsom (famous for pretty much a nasty prison). Then I decided to do a Google search on "holiday tree lighting"....GOOD GOD (yes God)....now I didn't check all 1.5m hits the search returns but you can just page thru city after city across the country who think a tree with lights on it is not JUST ABOUT CHRISTMAS. That's right...you know the Christian feast commemorating the birth of Jesus!!

I can see the leftist politically correct couple taking their kids to the Holiday Tree Lighting at the town square; child: gee dad what's this holiday tree about? dad: well son, ah um, you see its sort of a time to rejoice and be thankful.... child: that's sounds like Thanks Giving dad...the only holiday I have heard of that decorates and puts lights on a tree and has something to do with Dec 25th is CHRISTMAS...dad!!!!!

This is just insane.......do people who are going to the fricken Christmas (because it's not a holiday or festivus tree for that matter) tree lightings think they are celebrating a Muslim event? A Buddhist one? Go get your own holiday you idiots...and I expect your asses at work on 12/25.

What? They're not allowed to call it Christmas anymore? That's crap, mate. Still, I think God would be happier with everyone getting into the spirit of giving and sharing rather than all of His followers throwing fits over others wanting to get into that spirit and have a much needed day or two off from work.

I think you Americans wouldn't be so up in arms over everything if you got a bit of time off from work once in a blue moon.

Hi Martin, ya I agree...I would love to take time off work and visit √Čire...I have a few local friends who are members of Doonbeg Golf Club in County Clare and I keep threatening to make a trip over your way with them!

It is time for a revolt and it starts with us.

Last year I found myself saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" because I didn't want to offend. It felt awkward and very unfufilling. T

hen I realized that I am commenting about MY belief, not THEIR belief (or lack thereof).

So @#!@ it!

This year it is MERRY CHRISTMAS.

And MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!!

With love,

Had a bit of time to kill today Tiny so I was sniffing out info on fresh christmas trees for a project I'm working on. Your post Christmas is not PC????? came up when I searched on fresh christmas trees. So thanks for an interesting read, glad I found it even though it's not completely related to what I was looking for! I'll look back from time to time if that's OK. Bye for now

Dear Tiny, isn't the internet amazing? I was out looking for info and sites related to xmas trees and the search put up your post 'Christmas is not PC?????'. Whilst it's not exactly what I was looking for I can see why it came up when I searched on xmas trees and other terms. Just thought I'd let you know I stopped by. Bye for now and thanks for a good read!

I love the internet – I have several review websites to help people determine what's good and what's bad on the net. I was just doing some research on the keyword south beach diet for one of my sites and Google led me here. These posts aren’t really what I am looking for but I just spent some time reading them – interesting.
