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.

I apologize if I seemed to be political, that was definitely not my intent. I have seen the commercial now, and I thought it was.....okay. Pretty inoffensive, really.

I didn't mind Trump at all - he and Macy's have a NYC quality about them.

I thought that Santa Edmund Gwenn should have been colorized for the commercial - he looks too much like a ghost passing through!

I love it!!! I thought it was nice to see them mixing the old & the new... Although I liked that they kept Santa in Black & White.

I don't have a problem with it. There are a half dozen or so other "celebs" in the commercial and I haven't heard any complaints about them. There's even an ex-con with more face time than Trump....
Seems like they're trying to raise some money for a decent cause, so I'm good with it all.
