Christmas in Schools
This comes after last year some schools banned singing Christmas carols and nativity scenes, in fear of offending non-Christian children.
Mr.Bracks said that the Government would send a message to every primary and secondary school, to remind them not to ban Christmas celebrations.
He also said "those who don't wish to participate don't have to, and those who wish to celebrate in their own way can do so. But even those from other faiths, of course, accept Christian celebrations and the Government is keen to ensure, there are no ban on any of these sorts of activities".
Go Mr.Bracks! (even if I get mad at you most of the time)
The message of Christianity is very important today, the message of peace, compassion and kindness can do so much. Without forcing it's values on anyone.
