Not being one to fan the flames of the culture war (honest!), I probably shouldn't bring this up, but it occurred to me recently that with the proliferation of establishment clause lawsuits over "In God We Trust" on our currency, the Pledge of Allegiance, and creches, why has no one brought a lawsuit against the National Christmas Tree?
In a transparent effort to avert such lawsuits, municipalities have begun to call their Christmas Trees "Holiday Trees." However, this ploy won't fly with the Reverend Jerry Falwell and Bill O'Reilly.
I wonder if it would bother Falwell and O'Reilly if they realized that the tradition of decorating trees at a midwinter festival was adopted from the Druids?
