The Port allowed 'holiday' decorations to remain but decided to take down all the 'Christmas' trees after a Jewish religious leader complained they were offensive.

"It's a Christmas tree! It's not like they were displaying crucifixes or menorahs or anything religious, but Christmas trees that have been around here for years," said an employee who asked not to be identified.

The Port of Seattle says it had little choice. It says a Seattle rabbi with the Central Organization for Jewish Learning hired an attorney and threatened to sue if the airport did not erect an eight foot menorah to balance the message of the Christmas trees.

Whatever, it's not like we'll be spending the 25th at the airport.
Really though, I'm just here to boost my post count.
