We are talking about the growing trend of renaming Christmas trees "holiday trees". With little resistance or outcry from the Christian community, this Christian symbol dating back to the 1500s is continuously being renamed a "holiday tree" or "giving tree".
MBC Global, a cultural training organization located in the Detroit suburbs, monitors activities involving the world's cultures. In particular with religious cultures, they have been following many events have occurred over recent years . They find it interesting that reactions within the various religions very greatly. Some events are met with passionate rebellion while others go largely unnoticed.
Guillermo, an MBC Global staff member, asked a question very pertinent to this topic, "what would happen if a mall, school, airport, or government building were to place a Menorah next to a sign 'holiday candlestick'?" Would there be a public outcry or would there be only a few stern complaints? We know the passion with which Muslims protect their religious symbols.
These last few days before Christmas, each time you see a holiday religious symbol, think of these words. Ask yourself the question: is this a sign of the end of a culture?
