Fox News host Jesse Watters is aware of the reasoning behind a Massachusetts town’s decision to change its mind about placing Christmas trees in its libraries.
The borough of Dedham first determined there would be no Christmas trees in any of its libraries, breaking with a long-standing custom, as reported by the Boston Globe. However, this infuriated several residents of the area, who caused a commotion that was heard by Watters, who told the story Monday on his Fox News program “Primetime.”
“Today, ‘Primetime’ scored another major victory for America. We’ve won the first battle in the war on Christmas,” according to Watters.
“Today, the tiny town of Dedham, Massachusetts, decided that their library will, in fact, put up their annual Christmas tree after some pressure from ‘Primetime.’ So how did we get here?” he said.
Watters emphasized the ability of one person to bring about change.
“Well, last week we told you about a Scrooge named Amber Maroney. She’s the town’s library director, and she banned Christmas trees because they made people feel ‘uncomfortable.’ You see, to some people, there’s nothing more offensive than twinkling lights on a Douglas fir, so there was no way the tree could go up this year. Look at last year’s tree. How offensive,” he exclaimed.
“But one brave foot soldier sounded the alarm.”
Watters was referring to Lisa Desmond, the manager of the Endicott branch of the Dedham Public Library, who revealed the scandal on Facebook on December 2.
“I have never posted a negative post on Facebook. That is, until now. I found out today that my beautiful library will not have it’s Christmas tree this year. Zero explanation. When I asked, I was told ‘people’ were made uncomfortable last year looking at it. I’m sorry WHAT? In my 28 years at the Dedham Public Library, I have never heard a negative comment,” she stated.
“We have celebrated and included everyone in our community. In fact, I was asked to emcee Juneteenth this year. What an honor. Those who know me and my family know we celebrate Christmas Hanukkah. My Muslim friends and Western Indian friends invite me to their celebrations. What an amazing gift.”
“Those who know me know I lead with positive intentions. I’m not feeling very positive today. Please bring Christmas back to my beautiful library. And always lead with love in your heart. Rant over,” she said.

Watters said the town missed the mark.
“So, you can celebrate Kwanzaa at the library, but you can’t celebrate Christmas? Does anybody in Dedham, Massachusetts even celebrate Kwanzaa?” he said.
“This doesn’t sit well with ‘Primetime,’ and so we believe we should be able to celebrate all holidays. As they say, the more the merrier. So, we announced our intention to visit this misguided Massachusetts town.” CONTINUE READING…
