Christmas in Washington

    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas, America. My Christmas wish is for us to stop hating on each other and understand that we all have different points of view, which we should celebrate instead of attack. That's what used to make us great.

    Even the Christmas decoration is better with this administration.

    Beautiful picture of the White House and Christmas Tree. I just hope everyone remembers the reason we celebrate Christmas and joins with some faith group to celebrate the birth of our savior.
