    I'm sure you all know this but I'll throw it out there anyway.
    Which State was the first to observe Christmas as a legal Holiday and when?

    without looking it up i'm guessing Indiana. it was outlawed here in the states i think in the late 1800's because of all its Pagan influences. the Irish potato blight caused hordes of Irish to emigrate here then and they brought with them the custom of celebrating Christmas. after much pressure our Govt later accepted it. BTW, "happy holidays" to all and please practice the "spirit of giving" every day of the year, not just one!

    I took a guess. It's just something that no one considers. Any way you look at it, who can actually remember when it happened? It was all before our time.

    John I'm going to guess Missouri. Because you asked the question and I think you are trying to brag on your state of Missouri. Ha.
