Good News: Christmas Name is Going Back On Philadelphia German Christmas Village

Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter has relented and agreed to put the term Christmas back on the German Christmas Village. The name was changed to "Holiday Village." Mayor Nutter can't completely give up his left=wing political correctness. He will still be lighting a "Holiday Tree."

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter says the city will restore two signs that read “German Christmas Village” after two days of controversy after the city tried to replace the word “Christmas” with “Holiday” at a seasonal market operated at City Hall.

Nutter said the change will be made on Thursday in time for the Holiday Tree lighting ceremony.

A member of city council, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and many local people weren’t happy that city officials wanted the word “Christmas” taken off signs at the annual shopping fair.
