Being fairly new here I guess you're not aware of our previous city sponsored traditions.
We used to celebrate the lighting at the water treatment plant with as the CITY CALLED IT : "The world's oldest living CHRISTMAS tree"
Yep that's right, the city actually mentioned Christ - and did it for years. So as a reporter perhaps you can explain why the hard question wasn't asked of the city - what changed it from the oldest living Christmas tree 2 years ago to holiday tree today?
I am truly glad to hear that you celebrate the holiday as Christmas as do many others.........but this does not excuse WWAY (or YOU) for falling for the pablum the city puts out.
Please, being milquetoast seems below you.....do better next time.
