More on Christmas, I Mean, Holiday Celebrations

This story from the Los Angeles Times is worth looking at if only to get the facts on what’s going on in our schools with respect to the celebration (or lack thereof) of Christmas. In short, it is pathetic and mind-numbing. If I were a parent of a public school student in one of these schools, I think I would be raising hell about this. But then, that’s exactly why I am NOT a parent of a public school student. Both of my kids loved their CHRISTMAS programs and we especially loved watching our daughter take the part of Mary in hers.

I agree with you - our Catholic school Christmas program was very Jesus centered! I watched "Fox and Friends" this morning as host Steve complained that his kid sang songs at their "Winter" program about Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Ramadan, but no Christmas. I can’t imagine why you would continue to send your kid to a school like that. If I couldn’t manage religious school, I’d home-school before public.

I realize that I live in a very rural conservative area, but not all public school are bad. I get so disgusted when people lump all public school together. There are bad private schools too! Our small little school has some of the best state assessment scores in the state...and our technology program has won awards the past three years in a row. And, we still say Merry Christmas and play traditional Christmas songs. A large number of our faculty are devout church goers and that reflects in both our teaching and our morale.

What I am trying to say is that I think that most of these articles that are in the news are the exception, not the rule. There are many schools in America where Christ is still a part of Christmas. Make sure your blame isn’t against all public schools.
