Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Pending a title and summary by California Attorney General Jerry Brown is an initiative that would allow Christmas music — as defined — to be performed in public school classrooms and assemblies. Parents would be notified in writing of the performances and could request their child not attend.

The initiative, submitted on August 28, declares in part:

“Listening to, or performing, Christmas music during the holiday season is a long-standing American tradition and a significant element of our cultural heritage as Americans.

“The parents and guardians of public school children should have the right to decide whether or not their children may hear Christmas music in the classrooms and assemblies at those schools.”

As defined in the initiative, Christmas music includes, but is not limited to, “carols, songs and instrumental works whose subject matter relates to the celebration of the Christmas holiday or tio the season during which that holiday is observed.” 

The proponent of the initiative?

Ms. Merry Hyatt.

  4. This could spell the end to the Christmas marketing season beginning in July and running through December. If this fails all of the separatist can then argue that Christmas failed at the ballot box so therefore it should not be celebrated.
    I wonder when we are going to wake up and read the constitution and actually understand that the separation of church and state, meant that the state could not pick one religion and then force it upon all of us. There is nothing that says that we can not have religious functions and references in public buildings and speech.
    The legislature opens with a prayer and the Supreme Court and in fact all Federal Courts open with a reference to God. Hell even the right wing wacko\’s have got to admit that their wonderboy President was sworn into office with his hand on a bible.

  5. Only one thing comes to mind: Macy’s! Macy’s is next. No Christmas music at Macy’s.
