National Christmas tree will display religious ornaments

The National Forest Service has reversed its policy banning religious oriented decorations on the White House Christmas tree.

The original decision came down after Arizona school children — chosen this year to design their own ornaments for the tree — designed ornaments with religious themes. Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) attorney Jonathan Scruggs says some of the “controversial” ornaments displayed manger scenes and the words “Merry Christmas.” ADF immediately sent a demand letter outlining why the ornament ban was unconstitutional — and received a speedy response.
