Nashville Council Expected to Say Glory Be (it Resolved) to Christ

On tonight's Nashville County Council agenda is a multi-sponsor resolution affirming that government celebrations of "Christmas" should be referred to as celebrating "Christmas" solely through use of the word "Christmas".
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY... That the Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as affirming and supporting the use of the words Christmas or Merry Christmas, instead of non-descript, generic terms such as Happy Holidays, Winter Festival, and the like, when referring to Metro Government events or activities traditionally associated with Christmas
Resolution here.
