  1. Candy cane banned....because, "J" is for Jesus, the red symbolizes His blood, and white is for the Resurrection.  

    No kidding.  The looney politically correct are getting even more loonier!

     

    Manchester Elementary principal Jennifer Sinclair sent a memorandum to parents and students informing them that candy canes were off limits because “Historically, the shape [of the candy cane] is a ‘J’ for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection. This would also include different colored candy canes.”

    The list essentially banned any Christmas-specific decor or activities, including Christmas carols and music, reindeer, Elf on the Shelf, and red and green items, but it allowed for non-Christmas winter imagery such as yetis, penguins and “snowmen, snow women, snow people, snowflakes”:

      The school should be made to stop using the term Christmas to describe their festivities.  Christians groups should take that up as a challenge.  That's a form of misappropriation.

      @betsy  have to agree, this whole PC nonsense is a bridge too far.     I'm surprised they do call it Christmas, usually it's 'holidays' or some such thing.
