Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt caused heads to turn with her bizarre explanation that the Christmas tree is really about Hanukkah and Jesus Christ.
“It’s a tree that unites us that brings us together, it is about the Christmas spirit, it is about the holiday season, it is about Jesus, it is about Hanukkah,” Earhardt said hours after an arsonist torched the Christmas tree on Fox Square. “It is about everything we stand for as a country and being able to worship the way you want to worship, it makes me so mad.”
As the Jerusalem Post noted, Hanukkah commemorates the rededication of the Jewish temple several centuries before the birth of Jesus.
“The two holidays, Christmas and Hanukkah, are coincidental in their midwinter timings, but in little else,” the newspaper reported.
