    (December 15, 2005) -- As part an increasingly visible backlash against the neutered (and some say neutered) greeting of "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas," the U.S. House of Representatives voted today (Dec. 15) 401-22 (5 voting "present" and 5 not voting) on a non-binding House resoluton supporting use of the symbols and traditions of Christmas.

    LB area Congressmembers Juanita Millender-McDonald (D., LB-Carson), Dana Rohrabacher (R., HB-LB-PV) and Linda Sanchez (D., Lakewood-LB) voted "yes"...but southbay Congresswoman Jane Harman (D., El Segundo) was among 22 House members -- all Democrats -- voting no. posts the text of the resolution below:

    HRES 579 IH

    109th CONGRESS

    1st Session

    H. RES. 579

    Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the symbols and traditions of Christmas should be protected.



    Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the symbols and traditions of Christmas should be protected.

    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 Christmas;

        (2) strongly disapproves of attempts to ban references to Christmas; and

        (3) expresses support for the use of these symbols and traditions.
