“Daddy, why do we have a Christmas tree at home and a Holiday tree at school?”
The Texas Legislature recently passed the Merry Christmas Bill in 2013. This new law protects Texan’s right to acknowledge traditional winter holidays on school grounds.
In today’s world of political correctness run amok, Christmas Trees have been replaced with “Holiday Trees” and simple on-campus greetings such as “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah” can land a student or teacher in hot water.
Whether it’s Christmas or Hanukkah, our children, teachers, parents and school administrators should have the freedom to acknowledge these traditions in our public schools without fear of censorship, punishment, persecution or litigation. The Merry Christmas Bill guarantees that freedom.
We hope other states will follow and pass similar laws of their own — but we need your support to spread the word across the country!
Tales of Christmas Past
“Let's get back to celebrating Christmas—not ‘Winter’ or ‘Holiday’ (we all know what holiday it is... own it!). I am grateful that ███████████ ISD still allows Christmas carols to be sung in their programs but the individual room parties still have the ‘Holiday’ or ‘Winter’ theme."
