Yes Virginia, there is a Christmas Tree

From an editorial written in 1897 in the "New York's Sun" by Francis Pharcellus Church:
“VIRGINIA, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds” ......

Regardless of whether or not you believe in Christmas, Cacky, there is not, and never has been a “holiday” tree. It has always been, and always will be a “Christmas” tree because it is connected exclusively to the holiday called “Christmas”.

It saddens me to find that you feel the need to be so Über-politically correct. I always thought that the primary obligation of a news professional started with being factually correct, not politically correct.
