You know, the term holidays actually originates from holy days. The liturgical calendar actually set aside days that were recognized as holy. I think it is ironic that I can't say "Merry Christmas" at school, but "Happy Holidays" is acceptable.
I am going to take down my little fall leaves that are up in my classroom and replace them with "Winter" decorations. Can I be honest for a minute: I really just want to have a Christmas tree at school! I don't think (yes I could be wrong) that I have any kids who don't celebrate Christmas this year. I really don't get why it is such a dirty word anyways.
