Is there a war on Christmas?

President Trump vowed to end the so-called War on Christmas by lavishly decorating the White House this year. Conservatives have long argued America is at war with Christmas. From "holiday trees" to "inclusive" Starbucks cups, Christmas is slowly being erased from American culture. But others think the War on Christmas is a ridiculous and made-up controversy. Nobody is trying to get rid of Christmas, only trying to expand the holiday spirit beyond Christians. What do you think? 🎄

Ahead of the holiday season this year, President Trump vowed to end the so-called War on Christmas.

“You go to stores, you don’t see the word Christmas,” Trump said last year. “It says ‘happy holidays’ all over. I say, ‘Where’s Christmas?’ I tell my wife, ‘Don’t go to those stores.’ . . . I want to see Christmas.”

 Trump seems to have followed through on his promise by lavishly decorating the White House in unapologetically Christmas decor.

Gone were the “Season’s Greetings” that the Obama family placed on their Christmas cards. The Trump family’s official Christmas card reads: “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.” The dominant color scheme is an old-school red, green and gold. And the official hashtag? #WHChristmas.

After a New York terrorist claimed to be inspired to attack the subway because of its Christmas posters, many felt this was proof the War on Christmas was real.

Every year, Fox News dedicates an entire segment to the War on Christmas, featuring stories across the country of Christmas under attack.

But others find the War on Christmas to be ridiculous. There is nothing wrong with saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" in an effort to be more inclusive. Even Ivanka Trump wished her followers "Happy Holidays."

And the so-called War on Christmas has been at the center of many jokes since its creation.
