Okay, I’ve just about had a belly full of all you people who want to change a “Christmas tree” to a “holiday tree” because it’s offensive to your sensibilities.

As for myself, I am a Christian and believe in Christ. Not one time in my 66 years on earth has it ever occurred to me to tell Jewish people I’m offended by them calling their holiday “Hanukkah.”

As a matter of fact, I never found anyone else’s religious preference any of my business, much less asking them to change anything about it.

To all you politically correct people: You have no right to request we change what we call things, believe in, or how any of us live our lives!

On that note, I’m going to go enjoy my “Christmas tree.”
