Apparently we aren't allowed to say "Merry Christmas" at our school. Oh and it's a holiday tree, not a Christmas Tree.—

The PC Grinches who stole Christmas! Twitter was buzzing this morning over a report that a Christmas tree was banned from a senior apartment complex.
The tree was ordered removed and residents were none too pleased.
Frances Schaeffer, who is Jewish, said she doesn’t understand the property management company’s stance.
“This tree is a symbol of reverence that we can all enjoy regardless of our religious beliefs,” she said.
Can’t have that! This senior apartment complex isn’t alone. The same thing is happening in schools across America and Britain.
thats ridiculous, my old primary school has banned the children taking in christmas cards for eachother! whats wrong with that?!—

No. No, you aren’t. There is to be no mention of the dreaded C-word, as these Twitter users report.
So my school was like "we're not putting up christmas decorations because we don't want to offend anyone that doesn't celebrate it"…—

No this, no that at school because we might offend someone. What about what Christians believe in? Merry CHRISTmas! 🎄—

At school we aren't allowed to say Christmas because we can't offend anyone. Isn't that a little EXTREME???—

What about Christmas carols? Surely children may enjoy those.
Regretting sending my kid to a catholic school. So many religious carols. So.many. HALP!—

Oh, noes! The horror of carols. Perhaps she should send her children to these public schools, then, where carols have been banned.
Its ridiculous that kids are not allowed to do any Christmas caroling at school!—

Sssh! You must mean “holiday play!”
And Christmas trees? Good luck spotting one of those through the Bah Humbugs.
There are still ornaments of wish list items on the Holiday Giving Tree in the school lobby. Be sure to take a look if you haven't already.—

My school called a Christmas tree a holiday tree. Last time I checked it was a Christmas tree .-.—

Some can’t even have “holiday trees” or any kind of decor at all.
How come every other school is allowed to have Christmas lights in their dorms—

I almost forgot that it was Christmas..UH has no lights or anything. Probably because they don't want to offend any of the many Muslims here—

A new excuse enters the mix.
Find it funny how my school isn't allowed to put christmas decorations up cos its a 'fire hazard' ahahaha get away man—

Ah, yes. The fire hazard. See, obviously fire wasn’t invented yet during pre-politically correct times.
Parents may soon start complaining as well. Because the PC Grinch is fouling up workplaces, too.
How annoying is it that I can't say Merry Christmas at work cause it might offend people…—

Also, I was corrected today for not calling our office Christmas tree a "holiday" tree. Henceforth referring to our menorah as a candelabra.—
Kelly Barrett (@KellyAlysia) December 06, 2012
Can't put up Christmas stuff in our office because it offends a coworker. Wonder if my middle finger in their face would offend them too?—

Governor Chafee swoops in with an idiocy double down!
Gov. Lincoln Chafee calls decorated evergreen in RI State House a holiday tree not "Christmas tree"bc thats what it is traditionally called—

Err … what?
Rhode Island..it's not a 'holiday tree', it's a Christmas tree. Jewish people don't have a holiday candle, it's a menorah.—
Heather Cyran (@heathercharms) December 03, 2012
And this Twitter user sums it up.
As an atheist, raised Jewish I promise you on all that is heathen AND Kosher it's not a holiday tree, it's a Christmas Tree.—

Enough with the Christmas hating disguised as political correctness. For the children!
