Letter to the Editor: Christmas Tree

letter Editor

To the Editor:

Is it not ironic that, in a seemingly well-meant call for society to become more tolerant, a recent letter writer on Dec. 14 exercises his own intolerance of a lovely and all-embracing tradition?

He divines that “the term Christmas tree” is “exclusionary, a barrier.” But in reality his favored term, “Holiday Tree,” is more so a politically correct (and effete) attempt to exclude Christ from the traditional joyous season; a variant of that exclusionary battle cry, “keep your religion out of my government.”

How about keeping the government out of religion (and traditions), as prescribed by The Constitution? This, rather than griping about bedrock traditions upon which our country was founded, and flourished.

Merry Christmas, everybody.
