Hallmark Faces Backlash For Changing Lyric From ‘Gay’ To ‘Fun’ In ‘Deck The Halls’ ? CBS St. Louis
Should they have changed the term gay? Will you boycott Hallmark? Big deal or not a big deal?
I think it is silly. When the song was written gay meant happy or fun. That is not what the word means today. There would be nothing at all wrong in my opinion with leaving it the same or changing it. It would be like taking "thee" or "thou" out of a quote on a mug. People just do not speak that way any more.
I think "Don we now our gay apparel" fits. Shouldn't have changed it.
