Banner at Lowe’s store in Austin, Texas advertises “Holiday” trees in English, but “Christmas” trees in Spanish

In Austin, Texas, for instance, a banner was displayed this weekend at a new Lowe’s home-improvement store.

In English, the sign reads: “Now Here! Fresh Cut Holiday Trees.”

But in Spanish, the sign reads: “Now Here! Fresh Cut Christmas Trees.”

“It’s OK to offend all the English-speaking Christians, but no, not the Spanish speakers. They may be just visiting,” a WorldNetDaily reader in Austin said.

“By the way,” the reader noted, “they only had ‘Christmas’ tree stands for their fresh cut ‘Holiday’ trees. P.S. Merry Christmas.”
