Your Crafty Kids' Ornaments Might End Up on U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree
Governor Jan Brewer is taking a few minutes to forget about the complex task of forging a state budget and focusing on something more fun: Christmas.
Brewer is set to announce a statewide project on Thursday to have children across the state make 6,000 handcrafted ornaments for the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, which itself is coming from Arizona this year.
The official Capitol Christmas Tree site says only 4,000 ornaments from Arizona schoolchildren will be accepted -- we're not sure who's right. But if you want instructions on how to enter and ideas for your ornaments, click here.
Maybe if we're good, Santa will bring our state the billions of dollars needed to make up the budget shortfall.
