The debates that have raged in years past—"Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays"? "Christmas tree" or "holiday tree"?—have largely quieted down in 2009. While it's impossible to quantify, there are plenty of pseudoscientific indicators to suggest that, yes, the war on Christmas, with or without quotation marks, is over. Or at least in cease-fire.I suspect it's more a cease-fire -- call it the modern-day Christmas Truce -- but Wisconsin's Capitol Rotunda would seem to bear out the idea of a lull in the fight. The Isthmus
Edit: buried at the bottom of Isthmus's search results is an article from today profiling the co-presidents of the Madison Freedom From Religion Foundation. But I don't think that disproves the idea of a lull in the fight -- if the FFRF was really still in the fight, I'd have expected more headlines about the tree sometime in the last two years. If our holiday wars are reduced to talking about people, rather than symbols, I think we're OK.
