A Controversy that arises now and then around Christmas over the displaying of christmas trees in public, government or locations where the public typically gathers (such as Banks, Grocery stores, etc) and is usually the result of someone having a problem with religious ideals and objects being on public display.

Typically considered political correctness run amuck given the absurdity of the dispute, especially considering that the Christmas tree is a relatively recent edition to the celebration of Christmas with origins in pagan religion and was almost instantly seized upon for its commercial applications by shops and business.
News reporter: a Christmas tree controversy today as Chase bank has told a branch of theirs that they can not put a Christmas tree on display and that it must be taken down after they received complaints from customers. Other customers have threatened to pull their money out of the bank if the tree is removed.
