H. Res. 579

                 In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

                                                     December 15, 2005.
Whereas Christmas is a national holiday celebrated on December 25; and
Whereas the Framers intended that the First Amendment to the Constitution of the 
        United States would prohibit the establishment of religion, not prohibit 
        any mention of religion or reference to God in civic dialog: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) recognizes the importance of the symbols and traditions of 
            (2) strongly disapproves of attempts to ban references to Christmas; 
            (3) expresses support for the use of these symbols and traditions, 
        for those who celebrate Christmas.
