One of my absolute favorite parts of this time of year is our family’s annual “sleigh ride” when we all pile into the car and drive around to look at Christmas lights. Our neighborhood hosts a contest among each block to see who can come up with the most charming light display, so there are always tons of houses that really get into the spirit.
In recent years, however, more and more communities have been issuing bans on holiday lights, Christmas carols in schools and religious symbols used in public displays.
Do you think that this is a fair way to honor all faiths during this special time of year, or do you think that all of the bans are a real drag on the Christmas spirit? Would you be upset if your child was told not to sing about Rudolph and Frosty in school, or if your neighborhood banned lights altogether? What do you think? You tell us!
