"Holiday Tree" Creates Controversy
By Angela Hatton
Frankfort, KY – A statement from Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear's office has sparked controversy among some residents. The statement asked Kentuckians to consider donating a 35 - 50 foot tree to stand in front of the capitol for the holiday season. The administration called the annually decorated tree a "holiday tree." Some Christians have balked at the "holiday tree" terminology. A Beshear spokeswoman says the governor has always considered it a "Christmas" tree and will continue to call it that this year.
