This is a load of bollocks. He is celebrating Christmas, but pretending he isn't, even though he's doing Christmasy things......
Where did I say I was celebrating Christmas? I like holiday trees. They look nice and make an excellent excuse to throw a party. I can only get them in December. What's so hard about that to understand?

You didn't, but we all know that's exactly what you are doing. If it walks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, it's a duck.
Nope. I don't celebrate Christmas because I am not a Christian, and I don't participate in the commercialized non-religious side of the holiday either. I just like the trees.
If I had it my way, Christmas would not be a federal holiday and you'd have to work just like any other day. Those who want to take time off to observe Christmas would have to use one of their personal days.

the use of christmas tree in celebration pre dates christianity, as its from the pagan winter solstice celebration; also the carol ` deck the halls with boughs of holly` - straight and pure paganism again as evergreen boughs were and are used in the winter solstice celebration.
modern use of christmas tree`s dates to mid 1800`s and the `tradition` was brought to england from germany successfully by queen victoria - the usa followed starting the tradition in the late 1800`s (1870 onwards)
You're fussing over the proper names of things and you can't even get its name right! It's not called "a Hanukkah," it's a menorah. And its use is exclusive to religious ritual, unlike the holiday tree, which is secular.
Look just how dope my holiday tree is! None of your bitch-ass fake trees can touch its majesticness:
