Merry Christmas bill passes in Texas
From Texas Values blog:

"Today HB 308, the “Merry Christmas” Bill, received final passage by the Texas Senate and is now headed to Gov. Perry’s desk. HB 308 makes it clear that public schools and their staff are permitted to acknowledge and educate students about historic and cultural roots of traditional winter celebrations and holidays such as Christmas, Hanukkah and others, and with school displays that can include Christmas trees, a Menorah, a Nativity scene, Santa Claus, Reindeer and more."

"The legislation also makes it clear that school districts, staff, and students are permitted to use greetings such as “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah,” “Happy Holidays” or others. Christmas has been recognized as a federal holiday by the United States since the 1870s."

Hooray for Texas! Good job! I'd like to see other states follow their lead.

kind of sad they have to make a law about something that should be a given in this age of "all inclusive" preaching that is done.
I am happy to hear they are doing this.

Wonderful! A state that realizes that our constitution says "freedom of religion" and not "freedom from religion....and every little thing that drive you nuts.""
