    I prefer to call mine a christmas tree, and I also believe that if somebody wants to call there tree a holiday tree more power to them, I just hope they don't take the meaning outta christmas,

    i agree with your 110% but the reason these people are saying holidy trees is to remove the reason for the season :mad:

    I never heard of a "Holiday Tree" before. But I don't get out much or watch television.

    Alot of the store's are also bending to the left so they don't offend anybody, instead of having signs that read, "Merry Christmas" they are posting signs that read "happy holiday's"
    I think that us believers should avoid those store's and do out shopping at store's that respect our religous holiday, I wonder how long it would take them to change those signs

    Tom, I fully agree with you... hope you don't mind me posting this on your thread.


    [font=arial,helvetica]Christmas Tree

    This is a Christmas tree.
    It is not a Hanukkah bush,
    it is not an Allah plant,
    it is not a Holiday hedge.
    It is a Christmas tree.

    Say it... CHRISTmas , CHRISTmas , CHRISTmas.

    Yes. CHRISTmas - celebrating the Birth of Jesus Christ!!!


    If this offends you...too bad.

    Get over it ~[/font]

    We were all asked if we were going to attend the company's Christmas party. When the sign about it was being put up by one of the useless "Human Resouces" personell, it said "Holiday Party".

    I asked what holiday was it for and she said "What do you think". Christmas I said. Well sure it is, was the reply.

    Then why don't you just put that on your sign? Oh we can't say that anymore, was the reply. Well, when you have a Christmas party, I might just come. Don't expect me at your Holiday Party.

    Come to find out, the one man that owns KCS International, the company I work for, is a whimp, and has bowed to the few.

    I used to tell folks, this time of year, "Happy Holidays", only because it was easy. Now that I find out it's now politicly correct, I make it a point to say "Merry Christmas".

    Once again I say, "Since when did the minority become the majorities voice ?" Why is it that everywhere you go nowdays you are not allowed to say or display a certian "Christ" name on a day that he was born ?

    My wife's job has told her she could be fired for saying to a customer, "Merry Christmas" ..... It may affend a shopper. Well, that there affends me big time ! Why is it o.k. to affend the majority to protect the well being of the minority ?
    There needs to be a grass roots movement started to let "Our Goverment and Corporate America" know we ain't going for this anymore !

    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL !
