Come up with ideas like this:
It’s called a CHRIST-mas tree.
The manufacturer, Boss Creations, is based out of Nashville. The “About Us” page from its web site states, “It is our mission to help you bring the Word of God into your home during the Christian holiday seasons.” It continues,
In recent years, our Christmas holiday has been made to become a generic holiday for all religions with many being forced to call it a “Holiday” season instead of Christmas season. We, as Christians, must take a stand and rescue our religious holiday. We at Boss Creations believe that one way to do this is to decorate with more Christian-themed holiday decorations including The CHRIST-mas Tree.
Several other commentators have already covered much of the terrain here. Matthew Paul Turner, representing Christians who are embarrassed by this kind of stuff, plays it for yuks ( “How do you put Christ back into Merry CHRISTmas? By crucifying your Christmas tree, that’s how!”); Bill Berkowitz offers a slightly more reportorial take on the Religion Dispatches blog; and Hendrik Hertzberg makes a thoughtful, pro-Christmas case on behalf of those who aren’t Christians. We’ll add only this:
The idea that spending more money will put Christ back into Christmas is, simply, stupid. It’s also cynical, manipulative and — at least in the case of the CHRIST-mas tree — aesthetically hideous. If anyone truly believed that purchasing Boss Creations’ products would further benefit the Kingdom of God, may we make one simple suggestion: If you’re going to spend $299.99, spend it on people who won’t be giving you gifts back.
