Survey Finds Most Americans Think Christmas should be “More about Jesus” and “Celebrated in public schools”

 

se“The Constitution both allows and protects the celebration of Christmas in public schools.”

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, a large majority (75 percent) of American adults surveyed believe that Christmas actually should be celebrated in public schools.

Interestingly enough, most (67 percent) Americans also said that “Christmas should be more about Jesus than Santa Claus,” revealed the survey.

Contrary to some school administrators, groups and even judges’ perceptions of what is acceptable; holiday celebrations, such as Christmas, are protected by the US Constitution.

“Public schools’ confusion about this issue and the legalities of celebrating Christmas in other ways has been largely caused by inaccurate information about the Establishment Clause spread by certain groups opposed to any religious expression occurring in public,” noted the Alliance Defending Freedom in a letter sent last month to thousands of school districts.

ADF Senior Counsel, Kevin Theriot added, “The Constitution both allows and protects the celebration of Christmas in public schools. We hope the materials we are providing to school districts will help clear up the misinformation that groups attempting to cleanse all traces of religion from the public square have spread for far too long.”
