“A Gift to a Nation” by painter of western scenes Tom Browning; Santa Claus puts together a flag for a family to fly on Christmas.
Christmas Day, December 25, is one of the holidays designated in the U.S. Flag Code for U.S. residents to fly the flag.
No, you don’t take the flag down for mere inclement weather; fly it through rain and snow. Remember to dry your flag before putting it away.
- Next dates to fly the flag: December 28, for Iowa statehood; December 29, for Texas statehood; New Years Day
- Look around for other Christmas and Santa Claus posts
