The Christmas Controversy

Brilliant blog by Whig on the ongoing controversy around Christmas:

Separation of Tree and State

His conclusion is (sorta) that crazy as our multi-cultural, politically correct, scared-of-offending sensibilities may be, they're better than 50 years ago when religion dominated our society. I'm usually of a mind that Christmas is an official holiday and Christmas trees aren't religious symbols - so leave 'em alone - but he's convinced me.

In fact, adding my own couple of cents here, we might think that it's part of the Christmas tradition to challenge our assumptions about what other people believe. Ah, it's that happy, heady seasonal litigation time again...

Happy holidays, everyone! Season's greetings! Enjoy the festive time period!
