However, I think I heard some people discussing this kind of thing and there was still an objection about Christmas in particular because it is the "dominant culture" in our country. While I agree that this is true, and am equally fed up with the commercialization, etc. of the holiday, I think it is unfair to single it out to be banned, or to ban all displays because of it. - Nancy --
