Disclosure laws like the Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA") and state public record laws are designed for the purpose of allowing citizens know what is going on in their government.

The celebration of Christmas, and the culture of gift giving that accompanies the holiday, have changed significantly in America over the years.

Although the Christmas celebration existed in America from the settlers' earliest times, the holiday remained small in scale until the 19th century, when it began to play a larger role in national culture, building on the work of Moore, Nast, Irving and others.
