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.

The city that stole Christmas

OK, the Christmas resistance thread was a great thread, and I think you guys will have lots to chatter about when you get a load of this site too!



This is the tale of a local government out of control, a bureaucracy out of touch, and the tyranny of power abused in arrogant disregard of the public trust. This is the true tale of...

I can't believe this happened in the Bible belt, in the Mid-West where people are decent and love the holidays. How these City Officials ever got elected because of the ignorance that they showed.
