anti-christianism symbols in Harry Potter...

J K Rowlings gets letters, lots and lots of letters.

"I had one letter from a vicar in England -- this is the difference -- saying would I please not put Christmas trees at Hogwarts as it was clearly a pagan society." Daily Herald, July 22, 2007

Vicar, you need to study your christian history.
The Christmas tree is often explained as a Christianization of the ancient pagan idea that the evergreen tree represents a celebration of the renewal of life. In actuality, when the Roman Empire was converted en masse to Christianity, many cultures did not give up their pagan ideals and traditions and so they were incorporated into the Christmas tradition.

Thou shalt not steal!
