Texas Schools Now Allowed To Say “Merry Christmas ” For The Hoildays

Listen Up Texas School Teachers. It’s OK to say ” Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah”

The Texas Legislature recently passed the Merry Christmas Bill.  This new law protects Texan’s right to acknowledge traditional winter holidays in Texas school grounds.

It started with a first-grader in Houston named Reagan who came home from school one day and had a conversation with his Dad, Texas State Representative Dwayne Bohac.

“This bill originated when I picked up my first grade son from school last year and asked him how his day went. He told me that his class had decorated their holiday tree with holiday ornaments. When I asked what a holiday tree was, he told me it was the same as a Christmas tree. After inquiring with school officials as to why the term ‘Holiday Tree’ was being used, it became apparent that the school was fearful of litigation.”

Students and teachers are now legally protected in offering holiday greetings and displaying anything from a Nativity scene to a menorah. But the display may not include a message encouraging a particular religious belief.
