Who was the Grinch?

Who was the Grinch that stole Christmas? The “holiday tree” decorations in front of City Hall commemorate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and “Happy Holiday” but no Merry Christmas! Who’s decision was this? 

The “reason for the season” has traditionally been a Christian celebration acknowledging the birth of the Christian savior, Jesus Christ. Certainly, in more recent years, its historical significance has become very “commercialized” but, nonetheless, remains a Christian celebration. I have no issue with any other celebration or no celebration.

But, no Christmas? How sad! Where are the church elders? Where are Christ’s people? I have not seen nor heard any protests. Are they huddled in their church enclaves too afraid to say anything? Perhaps, they just don’t care!
