As the battle over Christmas continues across America this year, consumers are taking notice for themselves.
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.”
