After controversy over the sanitized carol swirled in the media and on the internet, Hallmark amended its response: “We never intend to offend or make political statements with our products and in hindsight, we realize we shouldn't have changed the lyrics on the ornament.

And the double stitching on the neckline and sleeves add more durability to what is sure to be a favorite!

Many American schools have mounted campaigns to get students to abandon this slang usage because it can be offensive (there are similar campaigns against the slang use of retarded, not to mention lame, used in a similarly negative and potentially offensive sense). Beginning with a look at the subcultural world of gay men in the early part of this century -- particularly in New York and London -- this fascinating book analyzes the trends in dress adopted by gay men as well as the challenge gay style has made to mainstream mens fashion.

The melody is Welsh, dating back to the sixteenth century, [1] and belongs to a winter carol, " Nos Galan", while the English lyrics, written by the Scottish musician Thomas Oliphant, date to 1862. He published it in British Harmony Being a Collection of Antient Welsh Airs The traditional Remains of those Originally Sung By the Bards of Wales.

Now that you know that ’tis the season means and where it comes from, let’s have a look at how you can use this in a sentence (or even in your IELTS Speaking test). Apparently, Grant ad libbed the line, and director Howard Hawks left it in, which may explain how it got past the censors of Hays office who were intent on erasing sexuality from Hollywood movies. The principal, Chris Parker also told reporters "There was a different way to handle that, and a different decision that could have been made". The phrase " 'Tis the season", from the lyrics, has become synonymous with the Christmas and holiday season, [3] [4] 'tis being an archaic contraction of "it is".
