I was chosen to come up with a game and craft at my son’s winter party. During the meeting, i was told that during this party, i shouldnt mention Jesus, Hanukkah, Santa Claus and christmas tree. It must be snowman, reindeer, penguins. I was so disappointed to the point that i talk to another parent saying “i have never imagine this to be like this”
I went home feeling different about the meeting and i told my husband about it. My son overheard my conversation with my husband and said..
son: why cant i say Merry Christmas or why cant i talk about Jesus?
I really dont know what to tell him except to say that we have to follow the rules that they have. Then he answered.
son: it is sad that we cant say the word christmas when in fact christmas comes from the word Christ. I know that some people dont believe in Jesus, it is sad that i cant even say it during the party. I guess that is part of the school rules i have to remember. I think homeschooling is better than this.
i: we can always go back to homeschooling if u want to…we will try it next year…
son: thank you…
