OKLAHOMA CITY, OK -- An Oklahoma bill passed House last week that aims to protect holiday traditions.

What is being called the "Merry Christmas" bill won House approval by a 73 to 10 vote last Monday. The legislation would allow for schools to celebrate Christmas and use religious-based imagery, such as nativity scenes, during the holidays. It would also allow school teachers and staff to say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Hanukkah". The bill is authored by Oklahoma State Representatives Ken walker, Bob Cleveland, and Donnie Condit.
