    To my understanding, the celebration of Christmas is the only one of its kind that uses a tree in that respect, so I'm still calling it a Christmas tree. It's the same thing as the whole "happy holidays" versus "Merry Christmas" thing. What you call it depends how butthurt you are about it.

    I'm cool with the interchangeability of "Happy Holidays" vs "Merry Chsristmas", but I always call it a Christmas tree.

    It really depends what you celebrate and who you're willing to offend by calling it what you want. I by no means think that anyone should be offended by it being called a Christmas tree because what religion people practice should be their own business, and no one else has the right to intrude on what someone else is doing with their time.

    Plus, Dec 25 has always been designated for Christmas. If the libs want to have a Holiday Tree, they need to pick a different day and lobby to have it on the calendar.

    Re: Christmas Tree vs Holiday Tree

    I am an atheist and I celebrate Christmas. I call it a Christmas tree and I call the lights we hang up Christmas lights. I do, in general, prefer to say Happy Holidays over saying Merry Christmas just because it is more all encompassing. It isn’t out of some sort of political statement. I am not the least bit offended if someone tells me “Merry Christmas” or replies to my “Happy Holiday” with a friendly “Merry Christmas”. In fact if they specifically say that I will likely say the same back to them. If they say Happy Hanukah, I would say Happy Hanukah back.

    What does irk me a small bit is if I say “Happy Holidays” and they reply “Merry Christmas” with an obvious emphasis on the “Christmas”. Why make a friendly salutation more than it is?

    That depends on your definiton of "always". Originally it was celebrated on Jan 6th. It wasn't until the 4th century that the Church in Rome changed it to Dec 25th. Of course the Pagans had already been using that date and still do.

    But here is a little secret: more than one event can be celebrated on a given day

    "Always" in the US. The battleground is in the US, as this country is the last bastion of Christianity.

    I can't believe people actually get worked up about this. It can be whatever type of ****ing tree you want it to be.
