Michigan Town Fights for Christmas

A Michigan town is bucking nationwide trends and renaming their annual winter parade a Christmas parade.

In Saline, Michigan they held the annual parade since 1975. A decade ago the parade name was changed to the Saline Holiday Parade, sparking plenty of conversation and local debate of political correctness run amok. A compromise of sorts was attempted last fall when the event was billed as the Saline Holiday/Christmas Parade. But folks weren’t buying it.

After ten long years the Chamber of Commerce has finally caved — and it will be known once again as the Saline Christmas Parade.
