No Christmas trees for the climate conference:
Participants at Copenhagen’s global climate summit will be meeting during the holiday season, but they will not be surrounded by festive Christmas decor, according to Denmark’s Foreign Ministry.
Since Christmas is a religious holiday, it has no place at a United Nations event, said officials planning the event.
A sponsor providing fir trees for the conference’s Christmas trees learned this the hard way when it was turned away by planners of the international event, the Copenhagen Post reported.
Silly me: I thought the Copenhagen climate conference was a religious event; isn’t that why Rowan Williams is speaking?
