Based on your logic the only day you can have a "Christmas" parade is on December 25th. Christmas is a day, not six weeks.
It's a Christmas Parade that is  done before Christmas in the Christmas season. The title of the Parade tells you what it's about, it's about Christmas  and Christ the reason for the season in the first place.. A "Holiday Of Lights" parade can be held anytime of the year to celebrate light bulbs. A Parade of light bulbs that shatter the darkness. A Holiday for light bulbs.

Perhaps it could be the "Christmas and Holidays Parade of Lights"?  We realize that Christians are the main religious group in our area, but we also realize that there are others in our city that have special holidays during this time of year as well.  IMHO, as Christian, I think it would be a great gesture, a Christian gesture if you would, to lovingly invite those others, like our Jewish brothers and sisters, to be represented in this large holiday event.  Sure they could do their own parade, but it couldn't compare, and again, we Christians are so hugely dominant to the point that something like this can become not just "one groups event" but becomes more than that, everyone knows about it, hears about it, sees it on the news, in the papers, talked about among people and children of all kinds and religions etc.  Our parade and event is so large and such a "big deal" compared to what others could possibly do for their holiday during this season, that I think extending this invitation to be represented alongside ours would be a kind, loving, generous and very Christian thing to do.

How about we call it Jesus Parade and ban all references to any other religious or secular things? No marching bands unless they play Christian hymns. No inflatables except for wise men, camels, and donkeys. Definitely no Santa unless he passing out Bibles.

Would that make you happy?

...in the Christmas season.

I saw Christmas displays in stores before Halloween. When does your "season" begin?

Does everything that occurs after that date have to include the word "Christmas" in it's name?   There are five college football games on TV tomorrow. Shouldn't they all "Christmas" in their official name? Tomorrow is also a concert downtown at the BOK Center. Should the band  (The Black Keys) be pressured to call this a "Christmas" concert?

I've been posting a few years on here and if there is one topic I can always count on to reoccur. This is it. We are so passionate about the Christmas season. It has now joined the old adage of taboo subjects to never talk about. Politics and Christmas. Religion is being retired from Thanksgiving through December 25th.
Of course you know that's not the day Jesus was born on and a Christmas tree is a pagan display of.........you get the idea.
