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 think it's so sad, when people with no religion, cause trouble over holiday themed decorations. There never was trouble like this when I was growing up. If people feel that way over a nativity set, or any other holiday decoration, then so be it, but they don't have to look at it. Let ALL holiday decorations stay for the people who celebrate Christmas to enjoy!

This is sad when in all reality these "trouble makers" could care less. If they don't like it don't look. Don't ruin the fun for people who love this time of the year and everything that goes along with it...Jesus included!

Another thing they are taking away from us Please, if you dont like it, by all means dont put one up in your yard, but let those that want to, do so! They dont want to be "offended" but what about them offending us?!
