Even though we're a public high school, we should be allowed to call it a Christmas tree, and not have to refer to it as a "holiday tree,", amirite?

As a Christian, I am deeply offended by Menorah. I think it should be referred to as a holiday candelabrum.

You know, I thought Christmas trees were specifically used by those who celebrate Christmas...

Have things changed?

I know, right? People can go celebrate Christmas in their own homes, or in Macy's or something if they don't have a tree at home. If a school wants to be festive, it can put up some snowflakes.

That's completely retarded. No other holiday or religion uses a tree, that's why it's called a Christmas tree. So what, are we going to call the menorah the "holiday candle holder?"

I am personally offended by "whiteboard" seeing as how I'm white so we need to call it "The-Board-We-Write-On-With-Various-Colored-Markers"

To be offended by that is like white supremacy. Blackboards, however, are very offensive.

I don't celebrate Ramadaan. It should be called something else, because the word 'Ramadaan' is so fucking offensive.

if your seriously offended by people calling it a christmas tree, then you seriously need to LOSSEN THE FUCK UP.

Call it whatever the fuck you want it's not like they can sue you.

My mom had a Jewish choral director, and he kept a "Hanukkah bush" in his office, and apparently it was covered in bagels.

Why can't you call it a Christmas tree? o.O

@Livvie Why can't you call it a Christmas tree? o.O

Cause admin thinks that everybody who doesn't celebrate xmas will be offended, but they're not

Or American culture, whichever.

Christmas trees aren't a religious thing, it's just a part of Canadian culture. I say if you're offended, go somewhere else.

Nor do I really want to. I'll go with "s/he's a little serious" and say that Christmas isn't part of Canadian/American/Korean/New Zealand/whatever culture. It's Christian. Christianity knows no geographical bounds.

It's a tree. It has pagan roots. It's not of Christian heritage at all.
And I'll bet you also think Santa is Christian?
Nah.

Wow, I misunderstood that. I completely disregarded the "tree" part... Ahem. Nevermind. Sorry.

Then you should also have a Hanukkah menorah and anything else other religions have to celebrate.

Just fucking keep the Christmas tree out of public school and we're good to go.
