Halloween, Holiday, Christmas…

Let MY People THINK

On this Friday at my children’s school, in gleeful celebration of Halloween, kids will wear their costumes to school.  Then, the whole school will participate in a Halloween parade where the kids will go from room to room sporting their costumes and collecting candy along the way.  Immediately following the parade is a classroom party where, as my son informs me, as a math exercise, the kids will sort out their candy into groups.  Now, to top all of this off, Friday is a 1/2 day.  So, immediately following all of the festivities, the kids will go home early in preparation for the big Halloween night. YAY!

Well, while at my kids school one day, I was speaking to the VP of the PTA committee. During the course of our conversation, she repeatedly  referred to “the holiday, the holiday, the holiday”.  For clarity purposes, I asked, “Which holiday are you referring to – Thanksgiving or Christmas?” At the mentioning of Christmas, you would have thought I had just kicked her in the stomach.

She gasped and said, “You can’t say that.” “I can’t say what – Christmas?”, I asked.  “No”, she said.  “Why?”, I replied.  “Because it can be offensive.”  To that I said, “Christmas, Christmas, Christmas.”  I then started to recount this Friday’s schedule of activities in celebration of Halloween to her.  I asked, “You have no problem with the celebration of the most satanic event of the year, but the very mentioning of the word Christmas is forbidden?”  To this, she shrugged her shoulders and said nothing else.  Needless to say, she has not said another word to me since.


Common sense is not out of style people.  Let us be determined to wear it daily.


God bless…

    Jesus was not “politically correct.” He was more concerned with being “spiritually correct.”

    AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!!!!

    My saying has always been that “common sense” is an oxymoron. Thank you for your efforts to revive it.

    Thank you,
