    Last week the National Christmas Tree ornament guidelines said no religious symbols. This week they are okay. All that flipping must be making them dizzy, maybe that is why they are acting as they are :wavey:

    "Capitol Christmas Tree Will Have Religious Ornaments


    "World Magazine reports that government officials have decided to allow religious ornaments on the Capitol Christmas Tree after all. Children in Arizona, who will make the decorations, had previously been told their ornaments "may not reflect religious or political themes." On Thursday, shortly after the Alliance Defense Fund threatened a lawsuit on the matter, that guideline was removed. According to a spokeswoman for the Architect of the Capitol, the group that oversees the Capitol tree (among other things), that was "old information," and "is no longer the position of the agency." The Christmas tree ornaments must be submitted Monday, however, meaning the guideline may have already ruled out some religious decorations. For 39 years, the U.S. Forest Service has chosen a different state each year to provide a fresh Christmas tree for the U.S. Capitol. This year, Arizona was selected to donate and decorate the tree with the theme "Arizona's Gift from the Grand Canyon State."" Crosswalk enews
