Here are my Christmas Eve data points.
- Use of the word "Christmas" in public space is frowned upon, banned or prosecuted depending on the level of notice it receives.
- Congress is convened in its daily work with a prayer that specifically invokes "The Lord" or "God".
- West Point Military Academy produces a wonderful Christmas concert, at taxpayer expense, that includes hymns and carols that refer to the birth of Jesus, God, heaven, and many associated wonders.
- Many churches will be closed tomorrow, Christmas day, so that parishioners can spend the holiday in celebration (opening presents) at home.
