Once again we give into the fear of lawsuits and the fear of offending someone. For the last ten years Christmas trees were part of the holiday settings in Sae-Tac until a Rabbi complained and know all 15 trees are gone. He really didn't want them removed he wanted a menorah and a public lighting ceremony. Of course Sea-Tac didn't want to offend all the other religions there might be and decided to remove the trees. For one thing Christmas trees aren't really a religious symbol a menorah is. What a well decorted tree in Sea-tac would have done was to bring a littel warmth and happiness to some weary travlers.
