    should christmas be removed from the list of federal and state recognized holidays? i no of no other holiday that people get so tizzy about, especially if you want to allow people the opportunity to sing traditional carols....

    perhaps it is about removing it as a federal and state holiday....

    no. In fact, I think that other religion's holy days should be added to the list of federal holidays.

    Should we ban Christmas from federal and state holidays?

    Yes.

    Why? Simple......we are a Christian nation (at least according to some on this board), so why should we celebrate a pagan bastardization of a Jewish teacher's birthday, that the Catholic church didn't get right in the first place, because they wanted to appease the pagans?

    Let's just remove most federal and state functions first and see how that goes.

    I would like to see how quickly anyone who proposed doing away with Xmas was hung by the neck until dead.
