Oh boy. Here we go again. Could Gruber weigh in on this? I thought it was only about the TREES.
@ A little while ago I said…I think we need to expand to include tree stands, garland and boxes of shiny baubles.
Has anyone found the tree yet??? Oh the humanity!!!
Maybe someone was celebrating Christmas last night. Did anyone on East 12th near Avenue A hear a lot of whoo-hooing coming from the avenue n the week hours of the night? I can't see onto the avenue from my window, but, man, could I hear it! It sounded like people were celebrating something.
Why oh why should Christmas be crossed out and replaced by the word holiday? It is a CHRISTMAS tree. Period. End
@ Anon 6:23- It's funnier that way. That's why.
It's not that it's funny, it's politically correct. You'd be surprised how many people are up in arms about having Christmas trees in their buildings and Christmas parties in their offices, and would rather call it holiday parties and trees.See this http://www.oregonlive.com/news/index.ssf/2009/12/ashland_school_will_return_hol.htmland this http://content.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1868542,00.htmlAnd Grieve is just facetiously referring to that, I think.
@ Ho Ho HoOh, yes — several people yelled at me in previous post about the [_______] trees. I was told NOT to use Christmas in front of trees!
Right. If Grieve put "Christmas" we wouldn't get any news. Or hawk pics. S/he would be too busy filling out hurt feeling reports.
Actually, the tree is NOT a "Christmas" thing, it is a pagan thing. We should be calling these Jule Trees.
