Offending someone is the greatest evil that can be done in our modern, PC world. Woe be to him/her (don’t want to offend anyone by using a “gendered” pronoun) who dares to say something that is not approved by the PC police…like Christmas tree.
The fact is, some people might be offended that a decorated evergreen tree – a tree that does not just belong to Christians and could be decorated for any number of secular reasons – is described as a Christmas tree. Some people might be offended that I have even said Christmas without a disclaimer.
Those people are ridiculous and should laughed at. Lowe’s, I am talking to you.
Adrants has called out the retailer for calling Christmas trees family trees in their “Holiday” catalog. Family trees? If you are going to act like a PC loonie, at least come up with a better name for it. Like Non-denominational Deciduously-challenged Completely Secular Decoration Log…available only at Lowe’s.
Speaking of offended, I am offended that the agency, marketing department and legal team over at Lowe’s thought that “family trees” was a good idea.
They deserve all the scorn they are going to get.
