  • Well it's a fact. As long as she's not pushing the holiday on all kids but more informing them. I agree, it's pretty bold.

  • well...it is jesus's bday..i'm not religious but i wouldnt be offended. I think everyone knows that its his bday. I would maybe be upset if they were forcing kids to pray or something but its history..people should just deal with it

  • I agree. It is what it is and unfortunate that its bold. She should be able to say what all the holidays are whether they are Christian or not.

  • Im not a christian however I would not be upset. I understand that alot of people believe in Christ, and after all that is what Christmas is about. I believe that other people should be tolerate of all religion so I would hope that she would have written down Hanukkah and other religions holidays. If she did not then I expect it wont be to long before someone has a cow and calls the hearing board about her.

  • thats refreshing to hear! it seems like all our traditions and beliefs are being compromised because of all the other traditions and beliefs of other cultures. I am not saying the other traditions and beliefs are wrong, just saying I wish my son could go to school and learn our pledge of allegance and such without offending everone else.

  • A public school is not the place for this, that is why many schools have winter break not Christmas vacation (they just word it different). If she put up the muslim holidays I can guarantee Christans would be in an uproar. You cannot have it both ways people.

  • I don't see the big deal. It's just a fact. No one is trying to push the chidlren and their families to change religions. They don't have to celebrate if the parents have a problem. There are all kinds of options schools have for that.

  • Good for her, and good for the kids. They have a teacher willing to work outside the box.

  • i like that in my sons school instead of prayer..they sing a song...they sing "we are thankful, we are thankful, for our food, for our food" its so cute...they will always find away around it if you like it or not.
