Every year, Roseville has a number of seasonal events in November and December that get tagged with the label "holiday."
Whether it's the annual Holiday craft fair or holiday concerts, even in some church settings, the word "Christmas" is not found.
There are plenty of other communities where the same story is played out. For example, in the south metro, Lakeville holds an annual "Holiday Lighting Ceremony."
Lakeville Patch editor Derrick Williams says, "It's a quaint affair with choir singers from Lakeville's high schools singing carols, while residents and business leaders watch as the switch is flipped and downtown Lakeville's quiet park turns into a glittering and glowing ode to the holidays.
But by calling it a "Holiday" Lighting Ceremony, some argue this community is engaging in what amounts to a "war on Christmas."
Williams said one of his readers wondered why we can't say we are stringing lights on the Christmas tree?
That got us thinking, does it bother you that the word holiday is used in lieu of the word Christmas? Do you feel there is a war on Christmas? Or is it fair to be inclusive of other religions and other celebrations? Take our poll and let us know what you think.
