There’s no shortage of “holiday” spirit on display at Montclair’s main Post Office on Glenridge Avenue. But over in Hopewell Township, Santa and the “h” word are stirring up a lot of controversy. Elementary school principal Bruce Arcurio sent parents a reminder of the school’s seasonal party guidelines …From The Star Ledger:
“All December parties need to be winter celebrations and not celebrations of holidays.”
“All holiday decorations should be changed in favor of winter decorations. Santa Claus, Christmas trees and menorahs are all holiday-specific decorations.”
“The holiday sing-along will be discontinued as it has been at all other schools. If anyone has a suggestion for an alternative, please let me know.”
“Films shown on the last day before break should not be about the holidays and should be curriculum related.”
What winter? In the words of Baristaville’s Appletony…Merry Chrismukwansakkah!
