    Last night, watching the evening news, they ran a story on "public" officials wanting to ban all types of Holiday displays in their community. Today, I pick up the St. Petersburg Times and there is a story that employees at Florida Gulf Coast University are protesting a ban on Christmas decorations in common spaces on campus. What's up with this.

     I grew up in an era where "all" Holiday decorations were enjoyed by all, no matter what color, race or religious beliefs. Over the past several years, I've noticed a trend, where there is more and more outrage on holiday decorations by various groups, due to their beliefs. 

    The United States of America is a free country, with freedom of speech, so we should all allow groups to display their decorations, as they please. If you have something to say about them, because you don't feel as they do, say it to yourself and let every one else enjoy the diversification of others, where they might learn something; otherwise, I say, let's do away with the Holidays, the after Thanksgiving sales, and pre-holiday this and that. I'm sure at that point the retailers will protest, when their sales are down, and would probably endorse public officials that believe in the AMERICAN Way.

    Thank you for letting me share my opinion matter, I just think that things are getting out of hand. There are more important things to worry about.

I tend to agree.  All decorations should be welcome.
