This is not the 'holiday season'

The Glendale News-Press should know better.

This is the Christmas season, not the “holiday” season, as our Christian country celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ on Dec. 25.

In the Dec. 7 edition of the News-Press, an article and photos on “Dunsmore Elementary students sing holiday classics” made six mentions of “holiday” and not one reference to Christmas. There is something wrong when Glendale’s only newspaper avoids using the word “Christmas.”

The writer of the story referred to the school event “as part of the annual celebration.” What annual celebration? Of the “holiday season?”

How silly. The annual celebration is all about Christmas.

By the way, Congress voted Christmas as a federal holiday.

And please, don’t refer to the Christmas tree as a “holiday” tree.
