    Seniors decry ban on Christmas tree in their complex in Newhall

    Seniors decry ban on Christmas tree in their complex in Newhall - LA Daily News

    Seniors Outraged Over Christmas Tree Ban - Local News - Wichita Falls, TX | NBC News

    Residents in a Newhall senior apartment complex are protesting an order from management to remove their beloved Christmas tree from the community room because, they were told, it's a religious symbol.
    On Tuesday, Tarzana-based JB Partners Group Inc. sent a memo to staff at The Willows senior apartment building demanding they take down Christmas trees and menorahs in communal areas.
    The company has owned The Willows for four years, but this is the first time it's given such a directive to staff.
    On Wednesday, two dozen residents in the 75-resident complex gathered in the lobby to place a neon green sign that read: "Please Save Our Tree." "We're all angry. We want that tree," said Fern Scheel, who has lived at the complex for nearly two years. "Where's our freedom? This is ridiculous."
    Why are liberals mistreating seniors now? Next they'll force seniors to eat dog food.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Wait, they need seniors so that they can scare the hell out of them to secure votes for their candidates!

    Simple solution: In addition to the Jewish and Christian symbols include symbols from other winter-based religious and secular celebrations.

    Jesus H. Christ. If the residents want it, leave it the hell alone.

    Are you sure? This is a privately owned complex apparently. The semantics do not seem to matter here.

    It is sort of curious that management didn't first require that they call it a Holiday Tree instead. Personally, I prefer "Festivity Conifer," but that's just me.

    I think they should have gone for a Yule Log in the first place.
