The 300-year-old crèche was first loaned to the White House in 1961 by philanthropist Mrs. Charles W. Englehard, who helped then-First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy choose thematic decorations. The wood and terra cotta creche was purchased in Naples, Italy, and features 22 wooden figures, including a crowned baby Jesus. It was featured on President Kennedy’s 1963 Christmas card, which was never sent because of his assassination on November 22 of that year.


The National Menorah is a large Hanukkah menorah located in the northeast quadrant of
The Ellipse near the White House in Washington, D.C. It was first lit in 1979 by President Jimmy Carter , and has been erected and lit every year since. The Menorah has grown in size as well, and is now 30 feet (9.1 m) high.

It's in the op. Wikipedia. Pictures and everything.
I don't it's been replaced.
It's been displayed in the east wing for a long time.

History of the White House Creche (Nativity Scene)

Every year since 1954, under the Eisenhower administration, the White House has held the Pageant of Peace to celebrate Christmas. The pageant involved three weeks of performances and religious observances, including a life-size nativity display.

However, the nativity scene’s role in national observances has been embroiled in legal battles since the 60’s. By 1968 there was a growing movement to remove the nativity scene from official government holiday celebrations and by 1973 a court ruling banned the display of a life-size nativity or any other religious symbols from the annual Pageant of Peace. The ban on the nativity scene held from the Nixon era until the Reagan era when the ban was finally overturned. In 1984 the nativity was able to make its appearance once again to the Pageant of Peace.

you call it being tucked away in a closet on display?

it's not 30 feet large and on huge display like the manorah is.

they need to put the manorah in the closet and bring out the Nativity scene.
And Op must of the stories say it was lit near the White House...

It's not an accurate statement to say that it was removed.
This is one of those fake outrage "gotcha" guest threads.

Op runs a sensationalist headline intended to rile up people...

So what's the goal here, OP?

To make this forum look racist so you can report it to your handlers?


Bait thread failed. Looks like members are too smart here to get bent out of shape over nothing.
