So did Laura Bush, sadly.
The ACLU regards this as a :Holiday Tree" putsch..

When do the Jews staring lighting their 'Holiday Candles'?
Hmm. She also pushed for Harriet Miers. Laura, Laura, Laura!
Paging John "War on Christmas" Gibson...
Lotsa folks gonna be surprised when they meet someone in the afterlife and his name isn't Jesus Holiday.
This is sickening!
Perhaps you meant "referring?"
December 7th. We'll have the offensive language removed ASAP ;-)
John McCormack (D-Massachusetts), Speaker of the House until 1971, began the tradition of the Capitol Christmas Tree in 1964. The first tree was a live Douglas fir planted on the west front lawn of the U.S. Capitol. After the 1968 tree lighting ceremony, the tree died and was removed. In 1969, the tradition continued using a tree assembled from portions of three eastern white pines. This proved unsatisfactory and resulted in the Capitol Architect approaching the Forest Service for assistance.
Since 1970, the "people's tree" has come from a National Forest. The Capitol Holiday Tree is not to be confused with the Nation's Christmas Tree, which is planted near the White House and is lit by the President.
This is not the first time New Mexico has provided the Capitol Holiday Tree. The Carson National Forest provided the Capital Holiday Tree in 1991. Visit The Architect of the Capitol's site to learn more about the history of the Capitol Holiday Tree.
The official lighting of this year's Tree will mark the closing of the Forest Service Centennial year. As events of this 100th anniversary year are documented, this year's Capitol Holiday Tree will become part of Forest Service history.
I for one will not join in the anemic holiday expressions the godless choose to embrace. It is about Jesus.
I was reminded yesterday at church by our Pastor that we should forget about getting too upset by those lost in darkness over the holiday. We should be the happiest, most joyful and excited people embracing Christmas--make every body see the Jesus they pretend not to know. So, let's get happy and sing and give and bless.
When did Jesus have a holiday birth?
FYI, as an update on the Wishing Trees at Sears. I work at Radio Shack. Across the parkinglot is a Sears. Their trees are posted as Christmas Trees and I heard several Christ related Christmas songs coming from their loud speakers.
... right after the Muslims light their Holiday Bombs.
