  1. Nobody actually refers to this as a Christmas Tree lighting, do they? In all the VT towns I know of, (Bennington, Manchester, etc.) these are now “holiday trees” — which of course, they are decidedly NOT. Christmas Day, December 25, was deemed a federal holiday via Presidential decree back in 1870 and lighted, decorated trees came into favor in the USA during Victorian times as well.

    Christmas trees were hijacked by the left & we’re supposed to believe their fantasy that they represent “all” holidays and NON holidays such as “Kwanzaa”. They do not. The historical tradition of a lighted tree was for: CHRISTMAS.

    Then again – what can you expect from a group of anti-history nuts who believe boys can transform into girls?

    • The same moonbats who decry hunting have no problem with cutting a perfectly good “holiday” tree to display in their homes for 5 weeks then leave it’s dried up carcass out at the curb.
