    Bible Belt
    By SusanTeach

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I guess because I'm in the Bible belt it's never been an issue with us. I'm in a public school and we have Christmas parties. Santa comes to the lower grades' classes if the teacher sets it up. Our school chorus even sings songs that have Christ in them.

    A few years ago I had a muslim child in my class (precious child), but she still celebrated Christmas and didn't make a fuss over anything we did. When we have Jewish children in our class (I never have, but colleagues have), we teach the class about Hanakkuh as well.

    Our school district even starts the year with prayer (superintendent does it).

    I hope it stays this way!!!!!
