The Constitution does not prohibit public schools from recognizing and celebrating Christian holidays as long as the teacher is "teaching," not "preaching." IF the topic is curriculum-based and objectively presented, THEN religious ornaments may be displayed, the Bible may be used, religious songs may be played or sung, and the history of the holiday may be discussed. This page features articles which have been carefully researched to help Christian teachers prepare effective holiday observances for their classrooms.
