People lit up over calling Christmas tree ‘holiday tree’

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — There is a big beautiful tree downtown just across from the federal courthouse, but what is it? When we ran a story about the lighting of the city’s holiday tree, it lit up our web site with comments.

The name came from the city, which released this statement on the issue:

“The use of the word Holiday instead of Christmas has been an issue for governmental organizations across the country for the last several years. By using the word ‘Holiday,’ the City of Wilmington is trying to maintain a balancing act between the Constitutional rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion. We make every effort to be respectful of all beliefs and forms of celebration while also adhering To the law.”

But the people we spoke with still prefer Christmas tree.

“I’d like to think that you can call it whatever you want as long as it means something to you. I do think that holiday tree is an over PC term,” Ethan Sapp, a student at UNCW, said.

“They can call it what they want. It’s my Christmas tree. That;s what I call it,” Wilmington resident Fred Smith said.

“It’s a federal holiday. It’s called Christmas. Even our own government recognizes this as being Christmas,” John Keilbler of Wilmington said.
