The ChronicleHerald.ca: "OXFORD — Town councillors have put the Christ back into Christmas by decreeing that no other name be used to describe the holiday season within Oxford’s boundaries.

The councillors unanimously passed a motion Monday contending that 'the holiday originated from the birth of Jesus Christ.'

They also voted to make the entire month of December the Christmas season and called on Mayor Lloyd Jenkins to make the proclamation as soon as possible.

Deputy Mayor Leonard Allen said he made the motion because of recent news stories indicating that cities and towns were removing the word Christmas from the holiday season in the name of political correctness.

Boston considered calling Nova Scotia’s Christmas tree gift to the city a 'holiday tree' but relented after a storm of protest.

'I think Christmas is what it is, a holiday that denotes the birth of Christ,' Mr. Allen said after council’s Monday night meeting.

'Politically correct or not, I don’t think the name should be changed because the holiday is what it is.'

The deputy mayor admitted he didn’t know how well his motion would have gone over in Halifax or Toronto, 'but I would have presented the motion there, too, if I was on council there. I do feel that in this rural community where we live, it will be well-received. We here recognize Christmas as Christmas.'"
