Guest_ikonboard Posted December 3, 2004 Share Posted December 3, 2004 I am still unsure of Arnold Schwarzenegger but the one thing I like about him is he ain't PC. He calls illegal aliens illegal aliens, not undocumented workers. And he is calling the Christmas tree just that, a Christmas tree. SACRAMENTO (AP) - Arnold Schwarzenegger is bringing back the Christmas tree. The California governor yesterday helped a seven-year-old girl with cerebral palsy put the final ornament on the state's official Christmas tree. At the same time, he ended the politically correct practice of calling it a "holiday tree." Four years ago during California's power crisis, Governor Gray Davis lit the tree and then promptly turned it off to save energy. And he also designated it the holiday tree. Schwarzenegger followed that practice last year. But in keeping with the dying wish of a state senator, he changed the name this year, and says as long as he's in office, it will be called the Christmas tree. In yesterday's ceremony, the governor and first lady Maria Shriver flipped a switch to light five-thousand bulbs on the 56-foot-tall white fir.
