War on Christmas Watch: The Christ-mas Tree

Your latest weapon in the the war on Christmas, the CHRIST-mas tree from Boss Creations. From their website:

In recent years, our Christmas holiday has been made to become a generic holiday for all religions with many being forced to call it a "Holiday" season instead of Christmas season. We, as Christians, must take a stand and rescue our religious holiday. We at Boss Creations believe that one way to do this is to decorate with more Christian-themed holiday decorations including The CHRIST-mas Tree.

We have figured a way to enhance the tradition of decorating a tree for Jesus at Christmas by adding a cross that acts as a reminder of Him. By changing our tree to include a cross, we are making a statement that we want to keep our Christmas holiday! Our new tree and decorations ideas will not only help to enhance our celebration of the Christmas holiday but will help to enlighten those who may decorate for Christmas but may not be "Christians."

  1. I always feel a little weird when I read about things like this. I appreciate that the US (and many other countries) have the freedom to create religiously-overtoned products such as the one above. And I believe that people would want it. But, at the same time, I feel like it almost exploits some people who see a Christian symbol and feel compelled to purchase. I'm not saying the product is bad, or the purchasers are stupid, but, rather, the Christian-ness of the object becomes a bullet point in a marketing brochure.

    I think my real issue is seeing Christianity right alongside capitalism. It offends me on an aesthetic level, at the very least.

  2. Matt,
    Those that value liberty, would say that your repulsion over capitalism is misguided, and that your view of social engineering leaves little room for others to differ from your values. Therefore, your opinion will rule over others (individuals will have "no choice') if set into policy.

    The question as always, is should we legilate positive law, meaning what is speicifically considered as moral...then how will morality be "carried out" without impinging on our "Bill of Rights", and whose morality will be set as the absolute?

  3. Oh, I totally agree. It was more a discussion on 'Christian' products. Legislating these sorts of opinions is, indeed, a very slippery slope. Though, I do believe we should question our culture's sacrosanct icons (such as capitalism) against biblical ideals.

  4. Um ... ugh? Yeah, ugh.

    Many holidays occur around this time each year. It's not only Christmas. Saying "Happy Holidays" includes those that celebrate those other holidays.

    Also - That Christmas is a Christian holiday is debatable. Or so I'm told. ;-)

  5. Now Kay, I don't see why you are so hesitant. That is one fine looking tree. Sticking a big old cross in the middle of it makes it look great. It's a nice subtle touch.

    BTW, can you imagine walking into a friend's house and encountering such a thing? My, I'd just start backing up slowly...
