John Whitehead on Christmas in Schools

John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute has written a commentary on Christmas and public schools. In particular he zeroes in on schools which have gone overboard in their zeal to remove all religious references from the celebration of, "Winter Holidays."

The Rutherford Institute's attorneys have compiled 12 Rules of Christmas as a guideline for how Christmas may legally be celebrated in public schools, on government property, and by public and private employers. Each of the "rules" is footnoted with case law. An informative read. (Search by document title on Rutherford's website; direct link not working.)

Rutherford's website contains other interesting reading on this topic, including a new paper called Christmas Under Siege: A Report on the Elimination of an American Tradition.
