    On the other points you are correct that there is precedence in what the GOspels say.

    The virgin birth and the ressurection can be found in ancient Greek stories centuries earlier (and on more than one occassion).

    No. The mayor or equivalent in one suburb there has, but most of the city can have xmas trees. It is always good to check facts.

    Not quite right. Christianity is based(largely though not entirely) on the old and new testament.

    Re: Christmas Tree vs Holiday Tree

    I've always called it a Christmas tree. I don't care if someone wants to call it a holiday tree though.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I call it firewood with natural tinder.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: Christmas Tree vs Holiday Tree

    After the stupidity of this thread in that people even care what the stupid tree is called (get over it people, there are real issues out there to think about).

    I am going to start calling it a third week of december tree.

    I see

    And that makes everything Okay?

    Are you aware of any other SUBURBS in the world or Mayors that have placed a similar ban on Christmas Trees?

    Or is this particular Jewish Mayor in Israel?

    I do not care since it is their country and they can do as they please. It's a ****ing tree, who really cares.
