Where you live, do you plan on running in to any issues this upcoming Holiday season when it comes to not being able to project your religion as you wish, as you feel you should be able to?
A friend, who owns about 4 acres, ran in to some hot water last year when he attempted to place a huge cross made of lights at the front of his property. Many in town has several reasons for complaining. Some did not appreciate how bright it was while others found it offensive.
What about kiddos in school? Will your area hold a Christmas concert, play or otherwise?
We've got it easy. My kiddos are in a private Christian school that's pretty tame. As controversial as we will get will be the few Christmas songs they sing at the school's Christmas party. We knew what we doing when we put them in this school. My office is a very liberal-minded small business that supports all holidays. Again, I've got it easy. My hubs owns his own business. I don't really know what they do in the public schools around here. Other than call it "Winter Break" instead of "Christmas Break".
Our neighborhood HOA puts up evergreen garland and red bows on the fence that runs along the front of the addition (or edition? I'm really hungover). Most neighbors put up Christmas decorations but mostly holidayish, not religious. The schools have winter parties. The churches, mosques, synagogues - everyone does their own thing or nothing. I love this area.
We don't do anything outrageous for the holidays and I'm not offended by he celebration of others holidays. Our school as a federal program doesn't recognize any holidays and religious events are held by churches not by the city or anything.
The schools are relatively religion free, so no Christmas anything, but we are so multi-religious here you'll see everything driving around, from lit up menorahs to big Christmas displays, sometimes both on the same house. We have a masjid in town, a JW Kingdom Hall, a Mormon temple, three Jewish temples, a Catholic (huge parish) church, every denomination of Christian you can think of.....I don't think we have something for the Buddhists.
