Hallmark removes ‘gay’ from ‘Deck the Halls’ ornament

One of Hallmark’s holiday ornaments is being criticized for changing a holiday classic.

The red holiday sweater ornament is decorated with a lyric from the song “Deck the Halls.”

But, instead of saying, “Don we now our gay apparel,” it says, “Don we now our fun apparel.”

Many people took to the store’s Facebook page expressing their opinions regarding the change of lyric.

Hallmark released a statement saying that the ornament was created in the spirit of “fun,” and that the word “gay” has multiple meanings.
