"My daughter is a 20-year school teacher in the ██████ School District, teaching 5th grade. They are not allowed to even put up a Christmas tree (not any kind of tree)—not allowed. The children or the teachers or other school personnel cannot say 'Merry Christmas' to each other or to the children, nor can they exchange any Christmas cards or Christmas gifts to each other... very sad, as this has been happening for the last few years. My daughter informs me she and other teachers can be fired if they attempt to break this rule. So, no Merry Christmas at school, no nativity, and no Christmas tree or gifts. They can be 'holiday' gifts, but no cards with religious messages."
