Trees

I am disappointed in all the people who are upset over Christmas Trees being called Holiday Trees.

lets look at it from my angle.

I grew up in a Catholic family. When I was a child Christmas was all about presents and family, secondly it was religious. That is how I prioritized it. To me, church was the boring, red-headed step child of the holiday. Sitting on a hard bench, kneeling... for an hour or more.

Then, I grew up. I am not Catholic... probably don't even consider myself Christian... but I still put up a tree. Is it because I'm celebrating Jesus' birthday. Nope. I do it because its about family, friends, giving, recieving, thinking about others, catching up, warm fires... The tree is just something attached to the season. Who doesn't like a christmas tree (looking at one at least)?

and did you read that? I called it a Christmas Tree! Why? Not because of Christ... because that is what it has been called. If my family raised me to call it a Holiday Tree, that is what I would call it. I don't call it a Christmas Tree out of respect of religion, sorry.

I think the debate is stupid. Some religious zealouts need to get off their frikken high horses. and I need to pee.

Agreed. But a lot of people who are uber religious like to debate petty things like that. And then they wonder why the churches numbers are going down...

because they pass the donation plate five times now....

-Don't know.... I left awhile after they were brave enough to pass three times during one service.

Government wants to keep Christmas out of public schools...yet government offices are closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

I fail to see the logic.

I consider Christmas public domain. Its more of a seasonal tradition now than a religious.
