    Some Nebraskans are calling an elementary school principal a Grinch after she issued a memo to school staff that prohibited certain Christmas decorations and other religious symbols. Jennifer Sinclair of Manchester Elementary in Elkhorn, Neb., was placed on administrative leave Thursday following her directive, the Omaha World-Herald reported. District spokeswoman Kara Perchal said the district would not comment further. "Elkhorn Public Schools District administration promptly addressed the issue at Manchester Elementary School regarding the memo that was sent by the principal to Manchester elementary staff," the district said in a statement. An Elkhorn elementary school principal tried to ban Christmas....

    If jolly old Saint Nick were a real person who had a real naughty and nice list, Nebraska school principal Jennifer Sinclair would most definitely be getting nothing but coal in her stocking this year. Sinclair has went on an anti-Christmas rampage, banning candy canes because their “J” shape represents Jesus, the reason for the season. However, that was just the beginning. What kinds of items, you ask? Liberty Counsel provided a memo from principal Jennifer Sinclair that spelled out in detail all the verboten paraphernalia at Manchester Elementary School in Omaha: Santas or Christmas items (clip art) on worksheets...
  • 5 reasons why 'A Christmas Story' is actually a terrible Christmas movie (barf alert)

    When A Christmas Story opened in theaters on Nov. 18, 1983, it was not one of the year’s biggest films. Thirty-five years later, that little movie looms large over the holiday season. You can buy “major award” leg lamps at any price point, tour Ralphie’s actual house that was used in the filming of the movie, watch the Broadway musical adaptation and, of course, spend 24 hours in front of the TV watching the annual Christmas Story marathon on basic cable. The film has become a Christmas tradition beloved by many — but not all. In this video, I make...

    To a Nation of Snowflakes, Christmas Has Become Another Trigger Word “This Christmas season finds us a rather bewildered human race. We have neither peace within nor peace without. Everywhere paralyzing fears harrow people by day and haunt them by night. Our world is sick with war; everywhere we turn we see its ominous possibilities. And yet, my friends, the Christmas hope for peace and goodwill toward all men can no longer be dismissed as a kind of pious dream of some utopian. If we don’t have goodwill toward men in this world, we will destroy ourselves by the misuse...

    MIDLOTHIAN, VA (WWBT) - A Chesterfield parent is concerned after he was told students would not be singing any Christmas songs with the word “Jesus” in them at upcoming concerts. David Allen said he found out about the situation last week from his child who attends Robious Middle School. "It just seems like... everywhere you look everyone's afraid of stepping on someone's toes or everything is being so sensitive," Allen said. This is not the first time his child has taken part in the winter concert; but it’s the first time something like this has happened. "They were unable to...

    The best thing about the first day after Christmas: The Christmas curmudgeons ’ carping starts to wane right up until the calendar draws near to next Christmas. The progressive left are the collective Christmas curmudgeons. They’re worse than the Grinch, who at least ultimately acknowledged that there is such a thing as Christmas. Carp, carp, carp is all the Christmas curmudgeons know how to do. The beautiful Christmas Greeting, “Merry Christmas!” sends them retching over the nearest curb. Unfortunately for the marginalized majority, they don’t keep their misery to themselves but spread it whenever and wherever they can.

Santa’s spouse frequently fills in for his husband at malls, according to a description of the book Harper Design provided to TIME.

    We are in the heart of Christmas season, so that means it’s time for the tolerance Grinches to come out of their closets once again. And, despite its dumpster fire excesses, it is only fitting that the year 2016 close with the memory of these recent incidents and examples of America’s perennial War on Christmas. 1. No to “religious-themed” displays of Santa deity An Oregon school district instructed staff to sacrifice Christmas symbols at the altar of “diversity.” According to a memo sent by the Hillsboro School District, school staff could still decorate their offices, but were asked to “be...

    Environmentalists are really worried that your home's Christmas lights will ruin the planet. They worry that both the manufacturing processes of the lights and the electricity needed to power them will generate lots of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. They worry that the lights are manufactured in China and thus the amount of CO2 emissions generated during their construction is effectively unknowable. [Snip] Christmas lights aren't the only pressing issue troubling the minds of environmentalists this holiday season. The left-leaning news website Huffington Post encouraged readers to consider the environmental impact of Christmas trees in an article this month comparing the...

    Every year small towns across America are targeted because of their nativity scenes. This year is no exception. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) recently zeroed in on the small village of St. Bernard, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. The Madison, Wisconsin-based organization threatened the town with a lawsuit if they do not remove the nativity scene. However, it is actually part of a larger exhibit that includes secular symbols of the season. According to the FFRF’s attorney, Sam Grover, the display “conveys a preference for religion over non-religion and for Christianity above all other faiths.” In essence, they argue...

    CHRISTMAS treats have been taken off a menu and replaced with 'winter delicacies' over fears the phrase would offend Muslims. A function held at the Austrian embassy in Germany still served traditional festive fare such as Lebkuchen but rebranded them as 'winter delicacies'. The event was a presentation by the Chairman of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, Aiman Mazyek, who has written the book What Do Muslims Do at Christmas?: Islamic Faith in Everyday Life in Germany. The invitation to guests, from ambassador Nikolaus Marschik, was described as a “cosy get-together with winter delicacies.” A reporter attending the...

    “I’ve had to live through controversies like the notion that I was trying to kill Christmas. Right? Well, where’d that come from? Well, I bet, you know, well, he said Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. So, that, you know, that must be evidence of him either not being a Christian or not caring about Christmas. It—it sounds funny now, but you’ll have entire debates in conservative circles around that.” Bill Donohue comments as follows: Well, you know, there is evidence of Obama not caring about Christmas, and it didn’t emanate from conservative circles. Here it is. The cover story...

    A traditional nativity scene will not be put up in a Belgian town this year, amid claims it was scrapped in order to avoid offending Muslims. A former leader in Holsbeek, about 20 miles outside Brussels - claims there will be no manger to mark the festival because it would be 'too provocative'. . . . The decision not to put a nativity scene up was supported by the ruling coalition of the Christian-Democrats and the Green Party. But the Flemish-nationalist N-VA party called for locals to attend the town’s next assembly meeting - and to each bring a nativity...

    Where I live (near Los Angeles) you can drive for blocks without seeing a single home with Christmas lights, let alone a manger scene or some other religious decoration. And you can drive miles and see fewer than a dozen. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in an area where most residents were either Italian or Jewish. So many homes had Christmas decorations that you could almost be sure that if the home wasn't decorated, a Jewish family lived in it. And while I was -- and remain -- a committed Jew, I loved -- and still love --...

    A gay Christmas decoration showing a nativity scene with two Josephs has been slammed by outraged Christians. The colourful hanging tree ornaments – on sale for £13 - also have a lesbian version with two Virgin Marys sitting beside a baby Jesus Christ, who is lying in a manger. Campaign group Christian Concern has branded the decorations created by a California-based designer a 'blasphemous attempt to rewrite the Christmas story'. Chief executive Andrea Williams said: 'These decorations are a desperate and ridiculous attempt to pretend that homosexual relationships are pure and holy. 'They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented...

    Militant atheists at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) are threatening to sue St. Bernard, Ohio, over the city’s Nativity scene — a Christmas display depicting the scene of Jesus’s birth in Bethlehem in the Holy Land. If FFRF follows through and files in federal court, that case could result in a historic restoration of religious liberty nationwide. St. Bernard is a suburb of Cincinnati. For many years, the city has displayed a crèche — i.e., a Nativity scene — during the Christmas season. It is accompanied by non-biblical seasonal holiday displays as well, making this outdoor crèche similar to the...

    WACONIA, Minn. (WCCO) — What some might consider a home covered in an extreme amount of Christmas decorations is more like a lit-up landmark for neighbor Kari Cedersund. “Every time I try and describe to someone where I live, they would go, ‘Oh, you live across from the Christmas House,'” Kari said. It is a name that has lost its luster this season. “Seeing these lights dark for the first time since we’ve moved here is really hard,” said Bob Zajac, owner of the now dim Christmas House. “My kids are disappointed and our community is disappointed and I struggle...
