I read your the text of your thread

You copied something out of a book. There's really not much to it and it's not difficult to understand. You're mistaking decorating a tree for self aggrandized materialism. Your ego feels a need to speak out on this issue in order to feel better about yourself in relation to your chosen centralized religious beliefs that dictate so-called false idols are evil and will bring morality toward destruction. I choose to not criticize anybody for tree decoration no matter what season we're in and I don't think that festive action represents evil or materialism that denies your chosen god a place in your life.
