Twitter user @kehillahjewess composed a brilliant thread to demystify the holiday ritual on Christmas Eve, and the historical roots are pretty damn fascinating.

Politician's Overly Sensitive Tweets About 'Holiday Trees' Get Roasted

It's November now so naturally we're getting into the yearly debates about the holiday season and political correctness. What's the argument this time, you ask? Well, it all spawned when former Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker tweeted complaints about people referring to Christmas trees as "holiday trees." 

He also tweeted that menorahs are to be solely referred to as such, rather than a "holiday candle holder."
