WSLS 10 first reported the letter sent to employees saying Christmas trees wouldn’t be allowed in public areas this year because trees were considered religious symbols. After a heated meeting with employees the medical center reversed the decision saying “After a lengthy discussion, it was determined that Christmas trees could be displayed in public areas so long as they were accompanied by the respective symbols of the two other faiths that celebrate holidays during this holiday season – namely the Jewish Menorah, or Hanukkah Lamp, and the Kwanzaa Mkeka (decorative mat) or Kinara (candleholder).” read more here

If you have a problem with people celebrating Christmas, saying Merry Christmas, then go to work that day and stop whining. You are entitled to your own faith or lack of it but you are not entitled to force everyone to do what you want. Grow up and finally understand that Christmas is a holiday and not a "holy day" for most folks. I seriously doubt Christ would approve of Black Friday or buying a Lexus for yourself while using Him as a reason to go shopping.
