is Christmas which always seems to arrive so quickly once September is here. There is an apartment complex whose owners refuse to place a decorated Christmas tree in their office/reception area for fear of offending someone. Do you have a thought about that?

I personally don't understand how anyone can be offended by a Christmas tree. Even if they themselves don't put one up or celebrate Christmas.

By the way, welcome to our gang.

Welcome, ya more than one thought here! I wish everyone would quit worrying about offending others and just do what makes them HAPPY. This is America "Land of the Free". It's different if your doing something that causes harm to others.

This always make me smile so thought I'd share.

Thank you for the welcomes. phonegirl the True Meaning of Christmas you included is beautiful, and I have sent it on to friends. Appreciate all opinions as mine is that it is unamerican to exclude a Christmas tree.

Glad you enjoyed 'The True Meaning of Christmas' and sent it on for friends to enjoy. It's great to have you here with us. Won't be long and some will be sharing their Christmas decor. This is always a fun time of year on our Holiday forum.
