Last winter I noticed a new decoration downtown that was labeled a “holiday tree”. I am wondering if someone can tell me exactly what a “holiday tree” is? I’ve never heard of a Thanksgiving tree, or a Hanukkah tree, or a Kwanzaa tree, or a New Year’s tree? Perhaps they meant a Christmas tree? I have heard of that. I understand the attempt to not offend any particular religion by labeling it a “holiday” tree, but they failed to recognize that Jehovah’s Witnesses do not celebrate any holidays, and may be offended by the tree.
I make this point to confirm that political correctness always fails somehow. To further expand upon this idea see this cartoon:
