Lib’s tie themselves in knots trying to avoid the dreaded ‘C’ word

They want my money, but find the holiday that I celebrate so offensive they can’t even bring themselves to say the dreaded word “Christmas”:

Several retailers along Woodward in downtown Detroit are setting up for “Holiday DLight: Made in Detroit,” an effort to bring shopping to the city for the holiday season.

The holiday shops are being set up around Detroit and several storefronts are being built for retailers like Moosejaw and Papa Joe’s Snack Shop.

And this is even more pathetic:

The annual holiday tree lighting ceremony in Campus Martius also will usher in seasonal retail to downtown Detroit.

A number of shops will be open three days each week through Dec. 22 as part of “Holiday DLight: Made in Detroit” which debuts Friday.

Quicken Loans is sponsoring the annual winter celebration in Campus Martius. The online home mortgage lender also is working with the Somerset Collection’s CityLoft to activate vacant storefronts for the shops which have become popular downtown.

The lineup this year includes outdoor retailer Moosejaw, Santa’s Wonderland, the Detroit Art Shoppe and fitness studio Spinergy. They will be open Thursdays through Saturdays.

Ice skating shows, horse drawn carriage rides and musical performances will be part of Friday afternoon’s events. The 55-foot-tall tree will be lit at 7:45 p.m.

Not one mention of Christmas.

    Should my Powerball aspirations ever come to fruition, I’ll buy up all the billboard space I can find with a very politically incorrect Merry Christmas proclamation on them!

      That would be so cool.

    I am sure Christ would understand. Let’s cancel Christmas and all holiday whatevers. No tree lightings. Nothing. Prohibit all Jewish celebrations as well- Then leat’s see how all the parents handle the tiraids of the children. It might be worth the lost of one Christmas celebration. Nah! Forget it! Organize a million man march and we all sing Christmas Carols and drive the pro(re)gressives nuts!

      Isn’t it? A completely inclusive and politically correct nebulous holiday for all.
