After forming a committee and holding two open forums over an 11-month span, SGA announced this week that the new name of the former Holiday Tree Lighting will be “Holiday Celebration featuring the Lighting of the Christmas Tree.”
Wes Bonds, spokesman for the Holiday Tree Lighting/Holiday Celebration committee, said the committee got a lot of ideas from the two open forums.
“We wanted to find (a name) to encompass everything going on,” Bonds said.
The generic term “holiday” can include New Year’s Day, Diwali, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and Thanksgiving.
I for one am glad the Holiday Tree Lighting/Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Committee was able to come up with a name that was awkward not in the least.
