I just don't feel an elementary school should have that much religion based decorations. Its just not needed. Unless the intent is to push it on them. When they are older, in high school, I think learning about religion is okay. But not just Christianity. It should be open to all religions.



As far as not being able to say Merry Christmas in school, I think that is ridiculous. Especially in elemtrary school. They are kids. Telling them they can't say Merry Christmas isn't right. If they celebrate it at home, they are going to be excited. And telling them that they aren't allowed to say it, makes it seem like celebrating Christmas is wrong.

I would certainly complain because it violates the constitution and public schools are not allowed to endorse any religion. That is a federal law. If they hated me for it I would call them hypocrites because Jesus strongly preached against hating others.

I would address the teacher about the problem. If that didn't work, I'd go to the principal, etc. It wouldn't be the first time I've been hated or looked down upon for my lack of religious beliefs. DH said he would tell DD to answer every question the teacher asked with, "Jesus". :D

Religion is not something to be taught in a school. I don't really care what religion it is.
