State Rep. Pat Fallon isn’t happy about the development because, he says, a state law was passed actually allowing students and employees to say “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah” and “Happy Holidays.”
“We’re celebrating Christmas, so why can’t it be a Christmas party or maybe a holiday party?” Fallon told the news station. “But they’ve skipped over ‘holiday’ and go to ‘winter.’ That’s political correctness gone too far.”
“The kids are used to saying Christmas,” parent Rosie Ciullo said to Fox 4. “They should be able to say ‘Merry Christmas,’ and the one who doesn’t want to say ‘Merry Christmas,’ don’t say it — say it your way.”
