Let's be honest though, sometimes hearing one of our favorite Christmas songs, or seeing a well decorated tree can put a smile on our face right? So a little merry feeling is always welcome.

If you know anything about the defacing of the tree, you are encouraged to call local law enforcement with information that could help find the individuals or individuals involved.

Most of these laws are just funny now, but at one time, there was a valid (or at least somewhat valid) reason for them to exist.

Texas has plenty of strange rules and regulations that you could technically be prosecuted for if you violate them, since they've never been amended. Some of these are only for specific cities and not state-wide, but all of them are pretty odd!
