Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

Worst "Christmas" Commercial I've Seen

I just saw a Burlington Coat Factory commercial. It was supposed to be a "Christmas" commercial. Here is part of what was shown. A nicely dressed woman says to a nicely dressed "child", "Do you believe in Santa?" The "child" responds "I believe in cashmere!"

WHAT?????

That's a bit much...give me a break. I'm so glad my child is grounded..and not all about the latest fashions etc..heck if we can't find her gloves for example we grab two socks and off she goes to play in the snow. I pick and chose my battles and fashion not being one of them.
