War on Christmas

This term refers to the increasingly incendiary conflict between those attempting to preserve versus remove a Christian context from the orthodox “Christmas” holiday - catalogued with horror by right-wing media and with annoyance by left-wing media.  

While those on the left often portray this concern as a reflection of over-sensitivity and intolerance in a multicultural society (much like the right portray “microaggression”), for many on the right this reflects a legitimately fearful assault on free religious expression, Judeo-Christian heritage in the ongoing secularization of society.  

Still others have highlighted the “real war on Christmas” reflected as an actual violent attacks on Christians throughout the world.
