Here’s a debate that comes up every year just about everywhere: is it okay to call a Christmas tree a “holiday” tree?

You may remember a few years back, the Rhode Island state house renamed the Christmas tree a holiday tree and got some serious backlash, so now they’re calling it a Christmas tree again.

Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee says, “If this is what people care about, instead of lower taxes and better services, so be it.”
