Now that the Christmas season is over, not the holiday season, I would like to make a suggestion to all of you anti-Christmas people. Start planning now to pick a time, say in January of 2014, when you want your holiday season. You could call it Winter Wonderland Holiday. Since we Christians pick a pine tree for our Christmas tree, you folks could pick a maple, birch, apple, plum, whatever for your holiday tree.

You could call it Winter Wonderland Holiday tree. That would be nice. You could put it on the town square, decorate it with lights and stuff and then celebrate. Do this and leave us Christians alone with our Christmas season and our Christmas tree. You go your way and we will go ours. OK?
