Marine Corps Base Quantico recently announced it will be lighting the base “holiday tree” next week.
No word yet on whether they will also have a “holiday candelabrum.”
As previously noted, there is no military policy on public holiday celebrations on military facilities, though they are fairly common. While some have generic “holiday” events, other bases have not obscured the celebratory purposes, including Scott AFB, Illinois, Peterson AFB, CO, and Nellis AFB in Nevada:
The traditional Nellis AFB Christmas Tree and Menorah Lighting ceremony will be Dec. 3, 5:30 p.m., at the Chapel.
It appears the Capitol Christmas tree also remains traditionally named.
For the record, the Menorah lighting will actually be late. While many people think Hanukkah and Christmas coincide, the Jewish celebration actually started on December 1st this year.
