  1. I agree it is a Christmas tree. Calling it a “holiday tree” is ridiculous. If you don’t want to partake of the tradition, you don’t have to go.

  2. The holidays are about kindness, peace on earth and goodwill toward fellow humanity. Let’s keep it high, friends. Get that holiday spirit of love in your heart… it’s what it’s all about. Many blessings.

  3. Before you opened your big mouth, you failed to know about America: the land, to name only a few, that welcomed either you or your ancestors, that provided freedom and opportunity, and that protected you and your family from oppression, domestic and foreign.

    The First Amendment to the United States Constitution FORBIDS the government, LOCAL or
    federal, from promoting any religion.

    Thus, the tree in front of City Hall is a Holiday Tree, for all Americans, of any religion, of any color,
    of any creed.

    Enjoy the Holiday Tree for it stands for :America.

  4. Holiday Tree? A Christmas Tree is a Christmas Tree, whether you like it, or not. No need to try to call it something else.
