[b][i]For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold;[/i][/b] they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not." During the Roman celebration of the feast of Saturnalia, Pagans did decorate their houses with clippings of evergreen shrubs. They also decorated living trees with bits of metal and replicas of their God, Bacchus. [/quote] Have you ever wondered where the BS all ends. Its all the crapola coding. I believe in Christ, and ignore all the rest of the bible as primitve murdering very frightening hellzone stuff. I knew that as a child when I read the whole thing. The Spirit that I felt in a few good passages that drew me, was only in those few Good Passages. Christmas Trees are beautiful. Cheerful. A gift of joy. We celebrate Christmas on whatever day and if God ever created evil days, (which of course God did not), is redeemed 1000% to infinity and beyond by the good intent and joy, love of the people. Its all about Intent of Heart and nothing else matters. All the rest is kindergarden stuff for anthill earth. Set a trap for anyone and you alone fall in it. And that is what TPTB do with all these dates. I celebrate the metaphorical/real or both Christ, who actually is real, birth on that day, no matter when he may have been born, on a day shortly after the shortest day of the year, turned into something beautiful. If its stolen from The Festivals Of The Light, at least they named it a good name for the middle of winter. Plus I love and honor all the people who have ever lived, and some of their dates were good natural choices. GOD LOVES EVERYONE AND REDEEMS ALL DATES AND LOVES JOY, HAPPINESS, GOODNESS. Every single holiday this attempt to karma dump on people comes. The karma is like a boomerang. Because we the people aren't receiving, and we have our definition of the day, the tree and everything. Its all Love to us. Period. [/quote]
His decision angered the town's Arab and Christian minority, who accused him of racism. "The racism of not putting a tree up is nothing compared to the real racism that we experience here," said Aziz Dahdal, a 35-year-old Christian resident of Nazareth Illit.
"When we asked the mayor to put up a Christmas tree in the Arab neighbourhoods of Nazareth Illit he said this is a Jewish town, not a mixed town," said Shukri Awawdeh, a Muslim Arab member of the town council. ... "We told him that decorating a tree is just to share the happiness and cheer with other people in the town," said Awawdeh.
