Who else is tired of the politically correct folks calling a Christmas Tree a "Holiday Tree"?

well, considering christmas trees are carried over from the holiday that christianity took over and turned into christmas, holiday tree sounds like it could be just as feasible. it's a little silly, but seems no different than saying "happy holidays"

And you put christmas lights and christmas ornaments on them, not holiday lights and ornaments. Thats how it has always been and I dont see why it should be changed

People can take their Happy Holidays and Holiday trees and shove 'em up their arses.

I'm going to say Merry Christmas and Christmas tree. I don't care for political correctness, I don't care for offending someone, if I do, well too goddamn bad. I'm expressing my beliefs and viewpoints, but not pushing them on someone, unlike the political correctness nazis.

yep I was brought up saying christmas tree, merry christmas, etc and thats how its gonna stay.

If someone celebrates a different holiday and wants to say happy that then go for it, Ill say what I always say, and for someone to try and force something different is ridiculous
