“It’s not a holiday tree, it’s a Christmas tree.”
Truer words have not been spoken.
John Fletcher, who leads the American Legion post in Marlborough, New Hampshire, said them after being told otherwise by the local school superintendent.
As noted by Todd Starnes on FoxNews.com,
“For years the American Legion commander, who also portrays Santa Claus, had been allowed to post flyers in the public school to promote the annual Christmas event. But this year, Mr. Fletcher said the superintendent called to tell him he would need to ‘revise’ the flyer and remove the word ‘Christmas.’”
In SAVING CHRISTMAS, Kirk Cameron shares the biblical and historical basis for
many of our CHRISTMAS traditions, including the CHRISTMAS tree. Now if we could only get a copy of the DVD into the superintendent’s hands!
As Mr. Fletcher so eloquently states:
“In this case, this political correctness has just gone too far. It’s just getting out of hand.”
Merry CHRISTMAS everyone!
