^ That. I love the tradition, and I don’t mind that many pagan traditions have been “baptized” by Christianity. What bothers me is when folks look at elements of American Christmas culture (which at this point is almost exclusively non-Christian and purely social), and say they don’t want to participate in a Christian holiday. All of the American holidays have been so thoroughly commercialized and stripped of their religious meaning that anyone can participate in them without ever having to participate in religion.
From paganism, right? Because like most things associated with American Christmas, the tree isn’t Christian.
