JackieRabbit: Let's see now. The town can use a fake tree every year or they can go cut down a huge old tree that they will send to the chipper in just a few weeks. All this angst over a holiday that almost no one over 10 years of age really likes.

/grumpy old atheist me loves Christmas in nearly all its permuations and varied modes of celebration
//if your kid can't get within sight of a pine tree lest it set of an allergic reaction that would kill him, then please, slaughter him before he breeds, as to prevent the weakening of the gene pool

The war on Christmas has got to stop. These people who are fighting against it are going to burn in Hell. They need to accept our Savior, He will remove the hate from their hearts.

FTFA: "...Trees provide oxygen and sanctuaries for birds and so on."

This is true, but an outdoor Christmas tree will not provide enough oxygen to make a difference, and if some bird decides to make a home in that one, will he complain that the birds are losing said sanctuary?

sigdiamond2000: dj_bigbird: sigdiamond2000: Said Melissa Vedder, 36, of Birmingham: "I think it's horrible, and it's honestly tacky. It's going to be outside. Why would you put a fake tree outside? It's just absolutely ridiculous. I hate buying a fake tree to put inside. The kids have allergies, I have to have a fake tree. But outside? A fake one? I can't even imagine!"

Oh for the love of f*cking God...

Kids are allergic to f*cking Christmas trees now?

Lots of people have pine allergies. It's not uncommon.

No allergy is uncommon any more. People are allergic to electricity meters and photons nowadays, for f*ck's sake.


Well, there's one way to fix that...

We've had submissions from the Detroit Free Press since I've been on Fark but I still think they're from The Free Republic because of our icon.
