Holiday sales, yes; holiday trees, no

As much as I dislike religion, and as much as I wish the Constitution required government to be secular and not neutral, calling something a "holiday tree" is just plain wrong. As far as I know, the only holiday this time of year that has a tree in its observance is Christmas. As long as the other holidays get an equal opportunity for public recognition, I have no problem with governmental entities calling their trees "Christmas trees."

On the other hand, I see nothing wrong with stores having "holiday sales." If they want to market to people of all religions, they would be wise to do so.
