Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the symbols and traditions of Christmas should be protected for use by those who celebrate Christmas.
Whereas Christmas is a national holiday celebrated on December 25; and
Whereas the Framers intended that the First Amendment to the Constitution, in prohibiting the establishment of religion, would not prohibit any mention of religion or reference to God in civic dialogue: Now, therefore, be it
That the House of Representatives—
recognizes the importance of the symbols and traditions of Christmas;
strongly disapproves of attempts to ban references to Christmas; and
expresses support for the use of these symbols and traditions by those who celebrate Christmas.
