Please tell me this is going to be a Christmas tree and not a Holiday tree.

Again with the "holiday tree"? It's bad enough that uninformed pinheads believed that completely unfounded internet hoax last Christmas, but do we really need to revive it this year? Don't we have enough REAL problems and issues to deal with these days? Check your facts before you post this twaddle.
