Not just displays, either, but even the use of “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Hanukah.”
I’m not a big believer in a “war on Christmas,” but there has been a major battle between common sense and political correctness. Of course it’s a Christmas tree in the school office at Christmastime; what other holiday tradition has us decorate trees? Not even Arbor Day has us doing that, for Pete’s sake. What does it do to a school’s credibility with its students to see them denying reality so baldly?
No wonder young people have lessened respect for institutions and authority. In this case, it’s warranted.
