I agree with you Ryan and the Waltham Patch does a nice job of keeping readers informed about Waltham. I clicked this link because I was happy to see a Menorah lighting in the city. But most of the comments on this thread have an anti-semitic subtext. Not shocking but unfortunate.

The city referred to this event as its "Annual Holiday Lighting", hence why we used the phrase "holiday tree." That is how the city explained it, hence how we posted it. It is not meant as a politically correct term, just simply a way to refer to the event. If anybody has a problem with the phrasing, I suggest they call the mayor. You are all free to comment on this story as you have been, but let's not let the level of discourse take away from the point of Christmas, Hanukkah or other holidays -- family, friends, food and fun.
