And We Still Fight Wars Over This Stuff?

Columnist Eric Lacitis at the Seattle Times asks some theologians and professors about the history of Christmas trees and gets some interesting answers. Lacitis’ article is in response to a Christmas Tree brouhaha at Sea-Tac airport involving a local Rabbi.

I like the “100 days off a year from work” part. I’d almost fight a war to protect having 100 days of vacation a year. Feel free to use the article for those conversation downtimes when you’re standing around the tree at boring Christmas parties holding an under-fortified cup of eggnog listening to someone drone on about the housing bubble, or watching the latest news report of religion-based violence somewhere around the world.
