    But we don't and won't buy cut trees. We have one artificial tree that'll last years and years. It's greener in the end. ;)

    And we only call it a Christmas tree out of tradition because there isn't a Christian in this three generation household. It's a cultural tradition we keep.

    No Trees
    I want to address the murder of millions of trees! Do we really need to slaughter all these trees just to celebrate the annual debt renewal of the American people? But most of them come from tree farms proponents tell us, It's not like they're wild trees. Doesn't a "farmed" tree clean the air and provide us with life giving oxygen as well as homes for many of our smaller animal brethren? Doesn't a farmed tree remove CO2 and create Oxygen? Doesn't a farmed tree have the same soul as a wild one? The main reason "capitalism" keeps this sick tradition alive is to support the construction industry after all those decorations will be the cause of hundreds perhaps thousands of house fires again this year and further the need for the slaughter of even more trees. Boycott Christmas trees, if you feel the need to perpetuate this tradition get a potted tree. Treat it with respect and plant it in the spring. Tree farms should be growing trees to protect marginal lands from weather, not burning our homes to the ground.

    Holiday Tree sounds better. This for all of you so call christians. According to the bible. A book y'all claim to read but really don't. Having christmas tree is wrong. Again according to the bible.
    Jeremiah 10:1 Hear what the Lord says to you, people of Israel. 2 This? is what the Lord says:

    “Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the heavens, though the nations are terrified by them.

    3 For the practices of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.

    4 They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter.

    It has always been called a Christmas tree. It is phony and annoying to call it anything else.

    I find this offencive. It's a tradition specifically associated with Christmas. What if we started calling it a "Holiday Menorah" instead of a "Channukah Menorah"? Imagine the outrage.

    The magic tree

    This a Christmas tree that is decorated every year with 25,000 lights in the town that I live in. I go there every year to see it. It is simply breathtaking in person. There are colors of Christmas lights on there that I have never seen before.

    People hardly ever use holiday trees. I have never seen anyone who puts up a tree on the Fourth of July, Easter, Columbus Day, etc. Maybe that is just be, but I have never seen a holiday tree before. On the other hand, I have seen a Christmas tree, which is put up to celebrate a specific holiday that falls on the 25th of December, but I have never seen a holiday tree.

    The word "holiday" means "holy day". So all they would be accomplishing is turning "Christmas tree" into "holy day tree". Now really... That kinda defeats the purpose that they were aiming for in the first place. Just call it by what it is - "Christmas tree".

    In Finnish it's called "Joulu" tree or "Jul" tree, taken from the word "Yule" which was the pagan winter holiday before Christianity.

    So here in Finland we call it "Yule tree" as a English translation, and I think it's more appropriate considering that the "Christmas tree" has nothing to do with the Christian holiday traditions, rather the tree originates from the Pagan winter festival, as a symbol of fertility and spring.

    Now I'm not a very religious guy. I don't know if there is a god or not. I like to think there is. Was Jesus really the son of god? I don't know. I believe the words of god and Jesus are good words to live by, but still the skeptic in me still asks to see hard core scientific proof. As far as the tree thing. Well dam it, it's a Christmas tree. Just because people have different believes does not give the right to change what others may believe.

    Technically, neither. It's a pine tree. Or in my family's case, a fake plastic tree.

    If the dam Athesits want to remove anything religious from the every day why don't they start but preventing blasphemy.

    Every time one of them says "Jesus, or OMG etc.." I just laugh... an oxymoron of a religion.

    It would, quite obviously, depend on the person that bought it.

    Otherwise, they are usually just a pine or fir tree...

    Although I'm sure there are still a few Druids running around who will claim it's a solstice tree and the Christians just stole the idea for their celebration.

    It's a Christmas tree not a holiday tree; we're celebrating Christmas not winter holidays; it's proper to say "Merry Christmas" to those you wish to greet at this time of year.
