I thought the pole was to be un-adorned? Guess I need to look up the official Festivus traditions. I do plan on starting a new tradition in honor of Festivus by doing feats of strength, i.e., some type of grueling workout, on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Seriously.
I think this is a good T-man thing to do regardless of your religious beliefs. I'll skip the airing of grievances, though.
As somewhat of an agnostic, I have no problems with Christmas. I consider Jesus Christ an influential philospher and have no problem celebrating his birthday with presents and spending time with my family.
I don't care that Denver County spends money to put lights on the City and County Building - it looks cool. And I have no objection at all to Christmas trees. The tree actually came from a pagan tradition that celebrated the Winter Solstice.
