White House Christmas - A Disappointment

Forwarded to me by someone else: sad :(
When have you ever known a President to NOT have Christmas be part of our countries tradition

***************************************
This is a message from my friend who was mayor in Lubbock, Windy Sitton. She attended all the White House Christmas parties during both Bush years. This is a personal message to me and not a "scare tactic from unknowns" on the internet. Pretty much says it all.

Thought you might be interested in this information from the White House. This isn't a rumor; this is a fact.We have a friend at church who is a very talented artist. For several years she, among many others, has painted ornaments to be hung on the various White House Christmas trees. The WH sends out an invitation to send an ornament and informs the artists of the theme for the year.

She got her letter from the WH recently. It said that they would not be called Christmas trees this year. They will be called Holiday trees. And, to please not send any ornaments painted with a religious theme.

She was very upset at this development and sent back a reply telling them that she painted the ornaments for Christmas trees and would not be sending any for display that left Christ out of Christmas.

Just thought you should know what the new residents in the WH plan for the future of America. If you missed his statement that "we do not consider ourselves a Christian Nation" this should confirm that he plans to take us away from our religious foundation as quickly as possible.

I have to say that I am Jewish and think that the White House is ridiculous!!! Christmas is Christmas and Christmas trees are not holiday trees.

The political correctness makes me gag. If this is true, it's just one more thing to annoy the crud out of me until 2012.

One more reason of way too many that I can't wait for 2012. Let's hope that this country still resembles America by then. UGH!

Maybe 'now words to describe this' because it is most likely not true.
