"O Come All Ye Holiday Celebrators"
Such stories have been floating around, so I thought I'd link to a column by David Montgomery that sums up the problem and offers several links. At issue is the bizarre dynamic by which Christmas, the most widely celebrated of the religious holidays, is unmentionable in the place in which children spend most of their waking hours: school. Montgomery raises a great point:
I've put this on the list of things for which I intend to be watchful if, by choice or necessity, our children go to public school. If we don't start speaking out, it may eventually become the situation that the only place we're allowed to specifically celebrate Christmas will be away in a manger.
