Christmas in July?
No, Christmas in June.


Long overdue. Enough of hearing we cannot use the word Christmas in school calendars. . .

Thanks Texas,

Perry says he

realize it's only June. But it's a good June and the holidays are coming early this year," Perry said. " It's a shame that a bill like this one I'm signing today is even required, but I'm glad that we're standing up for religious freedom in this state. Religious freedom does not mean freedom from religion."

Thanks for the red flag, whoever did it!!!


i am ecstatic.

working in a school, every year I call it "Christmas Break" only to be told it is not. It is "Winter Break".

Well, I say, let's make a "Winter Break" that does not include December 25th.

Of course they know it's BS to call it winter break.



See how far THAT gets you.

The bill's sponsor, Republican Rep. Dwayne Bohac of Houston, said he drafted it after discovering that his son's school erected a "holiday tree" in December because any mention of Christmas could spark litigation.

Yup, Perry got that right. Not sure if he is quoting someone else, or if it is his words originally.

Just take a look at how many of the pinned threads at the moment concern schools

- this thread
- the suicide note thread
- the "peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are racist" thread.


And it's June for goodness sake - the stuff will really start again in August/September, when the kiddies come back.

Sec. 29.920. WINTER CELEBRATIONS. (a) A school district
may educate students about the history of traditional winter
celebrations, and allow students and district staff to offer
traditional greetings regarding the celebrations, including:
(1) "Merry Christmas";
(2) "Happy Hanukkah"; and
(3) "happy holidays."
(b) Except as provided by Subsection (c), a school district
may display on school property scenes or symbols associated with
traditional winter celebrations, including a menorah or a Christmas

(1) more than one religion; or
(2) one religion and at least one
secular scene or
symbol.

They(all of Kaufman co.)Tx. schools adopted with Dallas co schools not to do gifts anymore for the reason of up-setting other Religions.
