The Trump administration announced Friday it will cut Christmas traditions on the eve of the holiday and will require businesses to replace songs on their walls with patriotic songs and images of people and events from the holiday season.

President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted that the decision was “mean-sport.”

The White House announced Friday that businesses in states that allow Christmas decorations would have to remove Christmas songs and videos from their walls and signs from their windows from the morning of Jan. 1.

The White the White House said it had also imposed a ban on the sale of alcohol during the holiday.

The new rules apply to bars, restaurants and any other businesses that don’t serve alcohol, or that offer food, including gas stations and gas stations-only locations.

Businesses will have until midnight Jan. 2 to remove any decorations, but the administration said businesses could start the process by Jan. 10 if they have not received a notice from the Department of Health and Human Services.

“Christmas is a time to celebrate the American people and their love for our country, but this decision puts unnecessary strain on our nation’s holiday traditions,” HHS Secretary Tom Price said in a statement.

“While the Trump Administration has been clear about its intention to maintain holiday traditions and celebrations, the White is proposing that many of our nation�s traditions and cultural symbols be reinterpreted to accommodate the new administration�s new agenda.”

The announcement came on the heels of the Trump administration announcing last month that it would eliminate the traditional Christmas tree in public spaces across the country, while other parts of the country will celebrate Christmas in private homes.

A majority of Americans, including 53 percent of Republicans, support making the holiday a national holiday, according to a Pew Research Center poll released on Thursday.

A Gallup poll released last week also found that 63 percent of Americans said it was appropriate to celebrate Christmas.

The new rules come after the Trump White House proposed that Christmas should be replaced with the New Year�s Day holiday in December.
