    To what religion, I don't know, but its' certainly not a religious symbol of Christians, which is what the story hints at.

     

    I can only imagine how the discussion and decision making went when discussing this. 

      Saint Nicholas?  that's a real stretch though. 

       

      It may work out though.  Maybe they'll make up a holiday Ninja or something equally cool.

            Well phooey, I always thought that was true. Although it looks as though it's not totally debunked.

              Looks like those dipshits reversed course.

              On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

                  This country/enconomy depends on this...sadly.

                    China depends on it.

                        Every year my aunt sends me email decrying the "De-Christianization of the Christmas Tree" and I quote "It is a CHRISTmas tree, NOT a holiday tree and to dilute its Christian origins is disrespectful" 

                         

                        But since I dont ever see her in person I just quietly delete and go on with my day.
