It's Christmas at the OC Register!

I have to thank the editors at the Orange County Register for restoring the use of "Christmas" in Christmas tree. Last week, you'll remember I posted on their use of "holiday" instead of "Christmas" (see: http://hacknflak.blogspot.com/2005/10/oc-register-or-pc-register.html)

Well check this out: Nation's tallest tree arrives at Fashion Island.

The opening line:

"Fashion Island's 115-foot Christmas tree has come to town once again, arriving by flatbed at daybreak today to its familiar spot in front of Bloomingdale's."

Thank you again for bucking the political correctness. Just as other religions have their rituals, Christians decorate evergreen trees as one way to commemorate the birth of the man who they believe to be their savior. Don't take that from them. When other religions seek to display their icons, I would hope we extend the courtesy.
