Maybe a Christian spoke up and had the pagan symbols banned?
I'm an atheist and there's a small lighted tree in my living room right now.
I LOOOOOOVE Christmas!! Despite the fact that what must be 1/2 of my neighbors feel the need to plop "Keep christ in Christmas" signs all over their yards, I'm perfectly happy to secular it up and enjoy Christmas the way most Americans do. Lights, tree, garlands and wreaths, christmas music (even the religious songs!), get togethers, great food, gifts, etc. Some how I manage to enjoy the season without once believing any of the backstory.
I'd bet good money that this crap didn't get taken down because Richard Dawkins was out lurking behind the bushes trying to yank down the tree like the damn Grinch. This reads like a corporate wank making a silly call...
