Christmas Tree

Now let's get this straight once and for all shall we?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

This is a Christmas tree.
It is not a Hanukkah bush, it is not an Allah plant,
it is not a Holiday hedge
nor a Holiday tree or a Seasonal tree.
It is a Christmas tree.

Say it... CHRISTmas, Yes. CHRISTmas - celebrating the Birth of
Jesus Christ!!!

Do Not remove "Christ" from Christmas
Take a stand and pass this on this is not only Our Tradition, but known
world wide, just do not try to make us, the Christian people, change to
your way of thinking.

We do not say you can not say or do as your traditions, so please do
not expect us to change to your ways.

By the way it is our custom here in to say and wish others a
"MERRY CHRISTMAS" Not Happy Holidays nor Seasons Greetings,

This is the Christmas season, not the Holiday season.
Oh yeah and wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!!

If you agree with this, please feel free to pass it on!

Creativity has got to start with humanity

and when you're a human being,

you feel, you suffer.

Hi Pete ~~ Margaret sent me this too. It is very nice isn't it ? And so true, Christmas is Vhristmas !!

Christmas. Take care, Love, Merle.

Peter, I agree with you. I say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and to people whom I know are Jewish, I say Happy Hanukkah. But I am not offended when people say Happy Holidays - because I think they mean both Christmas and New Year's.

We have carried political correctness too far, in my opinion, and we need to reign in those people who would complain about everything - and make us take down trees unless we put up a Menorah, etc.

Yes, I am so angry that the Seattle airport in the US removed their Christmas tree because a rabbi complained!!! P.S. It's Katherine at In a Big Way - blogger won't let me leave a comment unless it's anonymous. I think because you've switched to the new beta version and I haven't...

I think I'd better go out and get myself a Christmas tree!!! I forgot! Silly me!

John said...

Gee, Peter. I wrote my own post for today and then came over here to check out yours. Kindred spirits, I think.

Oh, and did you get my email with the other 5-6 poems? I sent it before the fridge tag one. Let me know if you didn't and I'll re-send.

Where did you get my "Christmas tree" LOL
Same picture i used last year.
Yes unless you are beaver that's a Christmas tree other wise its dinner.
It's a symbol of our religion and no one will take that away.

You do have a lovely CHRISTMAS Tree. It can't be happy holidays to you as you are always on holidays.
Merry CHRISTMAS Peter.
