Christmas Tree or Holiday Tree...a big talk radio show deal here in middle Tennessee and now as I am typing the "controversy" is on ABC "Wrld News Tonight"
"Controversy" ? WHAT controversy? It's a friggen CHRISTMAS Tree, not a get-rid-of-religion-or-belief-of-a-god tree (read": "Holiday Tree").
Close to 90% percent of Americans want Christmas and a Christmas Tree and Christmas gifts and Crhistmas festivities. BUT, the political shitballs (like the execs at Home Depot) disregard that ninrty percent to appease the miniscule percent of peoples that don't even really give a shit about it to begin with (unless riled up, of course by some ACLU slug who has to something, anything, to keep his/her appointance).
It's Christmas...get over it. It's Hanakkua...get over it. It's a LOT of Holidays that relate to a relgious and people's historical traditions (except maybe for Kwanzaa which is a phoney scam manufactured a few decades ago by a scam artist just after he was released from prison). But, once again, I digress. Let the folks who want a Christmas tree get a Christmas tree. Not a Holiday Tree.
"Hppy Next Year Of Living Day, Darling"
"It's my BIRTHDAY!"
"No, it's Happy Next Year of Living Day"
"Tell Home Depot to shove it and give me my damn bthday present you politically-correct asshole son-of-bitch. And, btw, I'd like a Christmas present, not a holiday present". Regards...jack

Christmas tree - simple.
Quoting FlyingTexan (Reply 4): BTW - Anyone seen the upside-down ones? I'm going to get one this year
To each his own, but I just don't get the concept on these. The whole point of a Christmas tree (to me) was to have for a brief period, a piece of the outdoors, indoors, and of course to make it sparkle! If you get one of the upside down ones, you might as well get one of those god awful tin ones w/ the rotating lights at the base (you children of the 60s will know what I'm talking about).
"The two most common elements in the universe are Hydrogen and stupidity"
Not sure if this is 100% true or not, but my older brother who works for Sears mentioned to me that any employee that says, "Merry Christmas!" to any customer during their shift is subject to employment temrination. He also mentioned that a similar policy exists at Wal-Mart as well; his step-daughter used to work for them. Can any other Sears and/or Wal-Mart employees confirm this?
If that indeed is true (I don't believe my brother would lie to me on something like this); then, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
I think it's time that somebody (or bodies) sic The Rutherford Institute and/or ACLJ (American Center for Law & Justice) after these corporations or whomever's trying to basically eliminate any reference to Christmas (be it religious or secular) whatsoever.

Its definitely a Christmas tree.
My mom runs the US half of an international business here in the states.
A few of her employees threw out the office christmas tree for some reason to be PC with the rest of the employees.
She made them go out to the store and buy one on their own dime.
She told them if they didn't, no one at work was getting paid Christmas day off, there would be no Christmas party, and that no one would be getting a Christmas bonus. You can bet yourself they got a new tree. I love my mom
Her workforce is over 40% non-Christian, yet none of them complains about it. She will recognize their holidays (decorations like menorah, etc) if they ask her too, but no one finds it a big enough deal to.
I swear to God, as soon as its not a Christmas tree or Christmas anymore, I'm fu*kin out of this country to go live somewhere else.
I don't have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem
