Ban The Twig!

Now, look here and pay attention!

The whole point of greenery as decoration is that it is green. Pagans would bring evergreen branches into their homes at the winter solstice to remind themselves that spring will surely come. Christians appropriated this theme and translated it into an eschatological celebration. The hoped for spring is the hoped for return of Christ; the shrub in the winter is the light in the darkness and so on.

Therefore this new fangled fad of having a bare twig in the home masquerading as a Christmas tree is heresy. It is an abomination before the Lord. It is the Antichristmas. It is a declaration of hopelessness, a looking forward to an eternal winter where the only thing you will find in the darkness is more darkness.

So stop it!
