Holiday Tree? Nope its a Christmas Tree


Finally after 25 years of “holiday tree” because we are so lost in the politically correct world, we finally have a little common sense in Wisconsin.

I know there are people out in the State as well as the Nation that believe that to be politically correct we have to call it a Holiday Tree so not to offend those that are not Christian, guess what folks, the Christmas Tree has always been a Christian symbol, as for those with the freedom of religion group, bah humbug to you and yours.

For years we have all attempted to have a separation of Church and State, ok so why can we have a menorah at the capital but not have the other things that may mean something to those of us that are Christian?

Why are other religions allowed but the  mean old Christians can not have their faith to show?

The Holidays that are fast approaching us, I will make every effort to wish everyone I meet a “Merry Christmas” and if they are not Christian and they say “I prefer Happy Holidays” then I will be happy to say their preferred greeting, but as a Christian, I reserve the right to be heard.

I and many others out here are in the silent minority/majority, are tired of all the PC attitude now a days.

If you believe that there is no secular “God” that too is your right, I don’t want you shoving your beliefs on me, I am tired of having my rights trampled because you have a feeling that they need to have the separation of Church and State.

Far be it from me to explain that this country was found on the principles of the Christian faith, and those that are non-believers have the protection to not have to practice a faith, where the New England Pilgrims for the most part were escaping the religious orders of the Church of England, it is not that they didn’t believe, but that we had to respect each others religion, or lack there of.

By my recognizing the tree as a Christmas Tree is well within my rights, personally I would like to go back to Easter Break, Christmas Break, Thanksgiving break and every other holiday that was changed to be politically correct in this country.

    Very very true and well said. It’s the Christmas season to Christians, Hanukkah to Jews and various other holidays. However each should be free to say whatever greeting reflects their belief or custom.

    The Christmas tree is a custom of the Christian religion. The Menorah the Jewish faith. I grew up in Connecticut and it wasn’t uncommon for people to say I don’t celebrate Christmas. Ok, we accepted it and moved on, no hard feelings. This country was founded on the freedom of religion and none should be persecuted or made to feel guilty because of our American customs.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog by the way.

      Thanks for the stop and your comments are right on with what I was trying to say, I know that there are other religions, and I attempt to be accepting of them, but it seems more and more in this country if you are a Cristian you are not allowed an opinion, or a voice.

    “So we can only pray, if we are Hindus, not that a Christian should become a Hindu; or if we are Muslims, not that a Hindu, or a Christian should become a Muslim; nor should we even pray secretly that anyone should be converted; but our inmost prayer should be that a Hindu should be a better Hindu, a Muslim a better Muslim, and a Christian a better Christian. That is the fundamental truth of fellowship.” – Mohandas Gandhi

    I say, whatever your religion, own it and respect what others’ belief systems are.

    We put a big old Christmas tree up every year and it doesn’t come down til almost February, if the needles stay on!

    Thanks for the post.

    There are many that subscribe to your line of thought. It is not uncommon among Christians to have this attitude.

    Very interesting post / rant and I mean that in a good way.

    I posted something of this sort a couple weeks ago. Christmas is the holiday, it says it on the calendar and many many songs. If having a “Chirstmas Tree” is politically incorrect than change the calendar and songs.

    We have to respect all religions, Christian or not, but yet it seems the only one that is politically INcorrect is just that…the Christians
