School District Bans the Word 'Christmas' From Flyer

The school superintendent in Marlborough, New Hampshire issued a Yuletide edict to the local American Legion post: you can’t call a Christmas tree a Christmas tree.

John Fletcher, the commander of the local American Legion post, said he was banned from using the word “Christmas” to promote the town’s upcoming Christmas tree lighting.

The event is sponsored by the American Legion and the Monadnock Lions Club.

“He wanted to change it to say ‘holiday tree lighting’ instead,” Mr. Fletcher told FOX25 in Boston.

Needless to say, Supt. Robert Malay’s decision went over about as well as replacing Santa’s milk and cookies with tofu and a shot of wheatgrass.

“It’s not a holiday tree, it’s a Christmas tree,” said Mr. Fletcher.

“I was very upset, I really was,” he told the television station.

Holiday tree is so stupid. It's either a Christmas tree or it isn't.

I was at work and my boss asks if I could help decorate the tree? I asked if it was a Christmas tree or holiday tree? He said holiday tree. I said I don't do holiday trees.

if they say holiday tree, ask them where do they keep their New Years Eve tree.

If everything around us becomes generic, then so shall we.
