It's a Christmas Tree not a Festive Tree

123 replies 176 views Edited Dec 9, 2009

Or a Holiday Bush, or anything else they try to call it in the Sony Blog.

 

Geez Sony.  Grow a pair and call it what it really is.  This political correctness is getting out of hand.

Agreed. We've already had some discussion here: US – North America_ Playstation Blog Update: December 9th  about the subject.

Seems to me a thread discussing this is more appropriate that cluttering up the Blog update one.

it's their tree, so they can call it what they like. I put up a tacky winter bauble tree every year. 

The rest of my family calls it a christmas tree, but I'm ok with them being wrong. I must be feeling the holiday spirit.

Agreed, it is indeed a Christmas tree. The only time "Festive" should be used is when individuals are celebrating Festivus. Festive pole fits, festive tree does not. Funny, I kinda figured it would offend MORE people to tear a word (Christmas) out of the dictionary (at least when talking about the tree) for religious purposes than it would be to let the word be because Christmas is what it is, and no spelling or difference in wording can change that. Same thing goes for people who call it an "Xmas" tree. Uh hello, is there some kind of anti-Santa that comes and drops nukes for "Xmas"?

hmmm.IDK...take a look and see what you think...

 

Douglas Fir:

 

Balsam Fir:

 

 My vote goes to the Balsam Fir (native to New England and Quebec). It has the layering in the branches that is seen in the Central Plaza "Festive" tree.

Actually its just a common rocky mountain pine tree,,, see how the branches arch down.

 

PS,,, why do they always have people wearing bland default clothing in these advertisements?

They dont want to say Christmas tree cause not everyone celebrated the same holiday.  This is for everyone thats why they said its a festive tree.

...this is why I never completed the requirements for my Forestry Merit badge.  I was asleep during that lesson.
