last year De Carlo lighted the "holiday tree" and no one showed up.

All that taxes we paid and we got a bunch of stupid holiday trees.

This year De Carlo got even more stupid and going to just light "tree"

This sounds even more depressing to me.

Most of his supporters are Christians too. Why not scrap the stupid trees and save some money if this is the progression of things.

DHS labels Christians as terrorists and American cowards do nothing.

Just looked at the web site: www.ci.everett.ma.us/

Nothing that I could see on that site pertaining to the 'tree.' The news releases were from: March and May 2013 !!!

Would the web master please update this site at least weekly.

Also, let's call a Christmas tree what it is -- a Christmas tree !!!! Never mind being so PC about this.

I do give the school department much credit ... The students put on a Christmas Concert (yes they actually use the word 'Christmas." A lot of the surrounding towns call this performance a: Holiday Concert or a Winter Concert. Please continue using the word Christmas ....

Don't like it, don't attend, ask to be pardoned from performing, etc ... We Christians are losing our heritage. Thank you to the school department for our Christmas Concert - it rocks !!!!

Irving Berlin had a lot of common sense and talent when he wrote the great song "White Christmas" that celebrates Christmas day which is both a traditional holiday and a religious day.
If the PC crowd were around at the time they would want the song called "White Holiday." What a joke.

Every religious group should be able to have their special day celebrated publicly when it also becomes a traditional day with the public.

We are a nation of people inclusion not exclusion.

You do know that Irving Berlin was Jewish, yes?

Anyway, I wouldn't mind it being called a Christmas Tree as long as a menorah was also put up. If not, then it's a Holiday Tree because the government shouldn't favor one religion over another.

Federal Holidays refer to a specific a name celebrated on that day, such as Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, otherwise you would not know the reason for the holiday.

Why in the world would I want to spend 11 minutes of my life listening to the crud that flows from kkk member David Duke's mouth? Was there a point to your posting that link?
