There were laws passed in the early to mid 1700s that listed the celebration of Christmas and the display of Christmas trees as federal offence in the US...
In 1644, the English Parliament passed similar laws.
I was looking to find copies of these laws and the acts repealing them...
Anyone know where I could find it?

It was the Puritans (Christian extremists) who had Christmas banned. Basically they felt that people were having too much fun and in true Christian fashion that was just not acceptable.
