The ‘war’ is driven by a push to secularize public life by separating Christmas from the celebration of Jesus’s birth, a historian says

The Canadian Human Rights Commission said in a recent report that having statutory holidays for Christian celebrations such as Christmas is “a form of discrimination … deeply rooted in our identity as a settler colonial state.”

It’s the latest shot across the bow in what’s often called a “war on Christmas,” primarily driven by those seeking to secularize public life, says Christmas expert and historian Gerry Bowler of the Frontier Centre for Public Policy.

The children’s classic, “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe,” illustrates the loss of joy a society experiences when Christmas is downplayed or outright cancelled, he told The Epoch Times.

“Under the reign of the evil ice queen, the complaint is that it’s ‘always winter and never Christmas,'” Mr. Bowler said.
