I'm all for political correctness but sometimes it makes you wonder.

Seems the Havant Borough Council in Hampshire, which I believe is in the U.K. decided for some reason known only to them, that the term "Christmas" could/might/it's possible to offend non-Christians. This leads one to wonder whether anyone complained or was this unique decision a personal revelation? After all - this is the season of miracles of all sorts.
They replaced the term "Christmas" with "The Festival of Lights", which by the way is the English translation of Chanukah, a Jewish festive holiday that falls the same time as Christmas.
Seems that the Havant Borough Council has spent more than £5000 on Christmas - I mean - Festival of Lights, lights.
