It's Called CHRISTmas :)

Not just some nameless culture-neutral "holiday".
ORLANDO, FL, November 10, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Florida based pro-life, Christian legal organization Liberty Counsel has officially launched its eighth annual “Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign” aimed at combating the censorship of Christmas in today’s secularist culture.

In an announcement, Liberty Counsel highlighted its work over the past several years in educating people about their freedom to celebrate “Christmas” instead of the generic “winter holiday.” According to the group, it has overturned a number of “grinch-like” decisions, including rulings against nativity scenes on public property, the singing of Christmas carols by elderly members of nursing homes, and the censoring of words from Christmas carols by school officials.
Here's just one of the examples of what can happen when political correctness tramples tradition and common sense. Here's a similar example of a city trying to rename Christmas Village "holiday village", but apparently backing down, after the people started expressing their outrage en masse. Hopefully, the ill-famous Florida school too ends up backing down and bringing back Christmas - if there are enough people to demand just that.

Yes, it is possible to fight the absurdity of political correctness. If you have any doubts - take a look at this story: Disney and Wal-Mart now recognize Christmas. So - it's just a matter of speaking up. Or even - singing along, like these folks at the mall. Now, isn't that lovely? Whoever feels "offended", is free to get a one-way ticket to Saudi Arabia.
