That was before Christians allowed the ungodly secularists rob their children of their Christian heritage. Every Native American, African-American, Latino child can celebrate theirs, even if they have to make up events like the bogus Cinco de Mayo, but Christians can no longer celebrate the birth of Jesus. Our classrooms are much poorer for it.
In music class when I was in elementary schools we learned ever verse to every Christmas carol at school and then had a Christmas program where each class sang 3 Christmas carols each with all verses. These were songs like Silent Night, O Little town of Bethlehem, O Come All Ye Faithful, along with a few of the more fun Christmas songs. This was in the mid to late 60’s and early 70’s, back when Christmas was Christmas. We also learned every patriotic American song and all the old songs of the pilgrims and some Indian songs. It was a wonderful time to be an American child.
I don't get your comment. Latinos are overwhelmingly Catholic. That means that they celebrate Christmas.
And Cinco de Mayo is made up and bogus? What does that mean? If Americans what to commandeer the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo and make it a drinking day, I don't see that as much different than Americans commandeering the Irish holiday of St. Patricks Day and making it a drinking day.
