My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree.

Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

Well, they banned real education in many schools around the country. So why not Santa too? "Our" American schools now push through students taught what to think instead of students guided through education while being taught how to think for yourself. Our school systems are run more like prisons now.

This makes me sad. In our school, every year our headmaster dressed up as Santa during lunchbreak and handed out chocolate bars to the kids and we all loved it...

She says officials were questioned by someone in the district as to why it promoted a “singular focused activity” involving Santa when schools began planning holiday events.
Here's the problem these days. ONE person complains that he's been offended by something that everyone else loves, then our non-representing representative go into action, banning the subject matter, even though the majority of us want to keep it.

I swear, we gotta vote ALL these idiots out.
