THE CHRISTMAS TREE

Christmas is getting near and in the streets of my town you can see the preparations to dress the big cedar in the park. Nowadays, in my town there are many Jehovah’s Witnesses who, even though they are Christians, do not believe that December 25th is the real day of Jesus’ birth. Moreover both Jews and Muslims do not celebrate Christmas. What about showing respect for their feelings? Dressing the trees in public streets and parks does not respect their faith.
Therefore, on Christmas everybody should be free to dress Christmas trees at his own home or in his private garden, but the City Council should not allow this pseudo-expression of religious feeling and the waste of a lot of money which belongs to collectivity. Saving power on Christmas would benefit the environment and the coffers of the state as well.
