Bah Humbug! Christmas Trees Axed From Copenhagen Conference December 7, 2009

Attendantss at Copenhagen’s global climate summit will be meeting during the holiday season, but they will not be encompassed by festive Christmas decorations. 

Since Christmas is a religious holiday, it has no place at a United Nations event. A sponsor providing fir trees for the conference’s Christmas trees learned this the hard way when it was rejected by planners of the international event. The trees, usually used as Christmas trees in Denmark, were supposed to be placed outside the Bella Center, where the 11-day conference will be held from Dec. 7 — Dec. 18. “We have to remember that this is a U.N. conference and, as the middle then becomes U.N. territory, there can be no Christmas trees in the decor, because the U.N. wishes to achieve neutrality,” said Denmark Foreign Ministry official Svend Olling. Fir trees otherwise reach the climate-friendly standards of the conference designers. Firs bind carbon dioxide and stop its release into the atmosphere.

I don’t have a problem with the ban as long as it is applied to all religions.
