Call it a 'Christmas' tree, not a 'holiday' tree

"Syble Hopp brings heart to the holidays" may have been a nice article, but I could not get past "homemade decorations on a giant holiday tree." Holiday tree? I am personally insulted with not calling this federally designated holiday, and its trimmings, what it is - Christmas. Never in 65 years have I gone out to get a "holiday tree."

People who want to diminish Christmas are insulting me. There is nothing wrong with Christmas. It's not a threat to anyone. Atheists are causing manger scenes to be removed, schools are replacing Christmas carols with secular songs and now we're calling Christmas trees holiday trees.

These are all indications of a much larger picture. This is an assault on Christian America. People can bash Christians all day long without consequences. These people are trying (and often succeeding) to minimize or eliminate religion from our lives and when that happens values of families and individuals change. Attacks on Christianity in America are on the rise.

If we want to keep Christmas for future generations we need to take a stance today, stand up for what we believe in, and keep this country "one nation under God."
