Christmas is becoming an endangered word in parts of Canada in a rash of politically correct behavior — such as renaming a Christmas tree a “holiday tree” — that even non-Christians dismiss as silly.
Toronto city officials began the flap last week when they called the 50-foot tree set up outside City Hall a “holiday tree.”…
Toronto is not alone in its efforts to stress a holiday spirit rather than talking about Christmas.
The Royal Canadian Mint has a commercial in which it changes the old holiday standard “Twelve Days of Christmas” to “Twelve Days of Giving.”
And so as to be inclusive of all genders and transgenders, we’re going to change the name of the Canadian holiday to Victor/Victoria Day.
