Holiday Tree?

HT poll

Ok, I fell for this Facebook Poll.  I voted NO.  And I made this vote before knowing if President Obama actually made this utterance.   Sad thing for our nation is that true or not, many, including myself, believe it would have been in character for our president to disrespect our nation and his own proclaimed religion.  By the way, I was with over 92% of the quarter million poll takers who said NO to renaming the Christmas Tree. 

And the facts are that I couldn’t find any facts that back up President Obama renaming the National Christmas Tree.  The only real fact I found was that the National Park Service is still planning a National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on December 3rd.  I assume that at a National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony there will be a National Christmas (not Holiday) Tree to be lit. 

If anyone has any more information on this, leave a note.

Now I’m off to investigate a rumor about President Obama renaming that National Jewish Candle Thingy.


  1. This poll is based on an alleged email that states an (unnamed) artist from an (unnamed) church got the word from the White House. Story’s been around since at least October.

    It wasn’t that difficult to find this: http://www.factcheck.org/2009/10/holiday-tree-hooey/

  2. Yeah, that’s the kind of stuff I was finding also. No valid source. I was duped.

    Merry Christmas

  4. I think it’s a pretty sad state of affairs when people in this country with all our real problems, feel they have to start rumors that are absolutely NOT TRUE. What does this say about us??

  5. I’m in total agreement. Let’s stick to what President Obama and others have done or say they are going to do. The truth is stranger than fiction;)
