City The Local War on Christmas
posted by December 23 at 11:31 AMon
Ugh. Let’s all pray to the non-denominational baby something-or-other that our region will soon stop handing the war-on-Christmas shriekers ammunition like this.
The past few weeks, visitors to the U.S. District Court building have been treated to a hapless display of irises, primroses and other spring flowers.
Why spring flowers in the dark of winter? It was a rush replacement. For what has been there in winters past—dozens of bright-red poinsettias….
Long story short: No more poinsettias in the lobby (workers can still have them in their offices). The landlord, the General Services Administration, felt it had no choice after hearing “a series of complaints” that poinsettias were “too Christmas-y,” says Bill Lesh, the agency’s spokesman.
