    Freaking hypocrites. They have a Christmas tree on public property, they have working chaplains of different denominations who say a prayer in the workplace and the king of the hypocrites says Merry Christmas while others of his liberal persuasion are outlawing the phrase, the tree and religious expression.

    The Christmas tree is not christian at all, a pagan symbol adopted for the season.

    All about the Christmas tree: Pagan origins, Christian adaptation and secular status

    In Europe, Pagans in the past did not cut down evergreen trees, bring them into their homes and decorate them. That would have been far too destructive of nature. But during the Roman celebration of the feast of Saturnalia, Pagans did decorate their houses with clippings of evergreen shrubs. They also decorated living trees with bits of metal and replicas of their God, Bacchus.

    Tertullian (circa 160 - 230), an early Christian leader and a prolific writer, complained that too many fellow-Christians had copied the Pagan practice of adorning their houses with lamps and with wreathes of laurel at Christmas time. 8,9,10,11


    The English Puritans condemned a number of customs associated with Christmas, such as the use of the Yule log, holly, mistletoe, etc. Oliver Cromwell preached against "the heathen traditions" of Christmas carols, decorated trees and any joyful expression that desecrated "that sacred event."
