Where has “Christmas” gone?

December 7, 2005 at 10:39 pm (Uncategorized)

I’ve been curiously watching the debate that is raging over the seeming disappearance of the word “Christmas” at this time of year. Several conservative Christian organizations have gone after retailers like Target who have refrained from using the word “Christmas” in their advertising, instead using “holiday trees”, etc.

The latest victim…President Bush. Seems the White House Christmas card this year wished everyone a happy “holiday season”. I guess the advocacy groups consider that a slap on the face. There is a Bible verse on the card – but it was from Psalms and didn’t mention Jesus’ birth. I don’t think the Bush’s holiday card sentiments reflect their true understanding of the holiday, probably just political correctness run amok.

So what do you think? Are we overreacting or is there really a “war” on Christmas?
