A teacher in a local Christian school was fired yesterday by school officials after saying ‘Happy Holidays’ to one of her 4th grade students.
That student, who is a Christian, found the teachers well-wishing to be offensive and inappropriate; that is when the student contacted his parents and the principal.
“I say ‘Happy Holidays’ to everyone, I don’t mean any harm by it,” The un-named teacher said. “I made a mistake. I apologised to the boy, his family and my colleagues for my actions, but they still let me go.”
The boy’s mother was fuming over the issue.
“You don’t traumatize a Christian child who loves to go to school, who wanted to be early every day to school, you don’t make him cry by bringing non-Christmas greetings into the classroom and wishing him Happy Holidays, it just ain’t right,” she told The Bendigo Standard holding back tears. “You just don’t do it. It ain’t right, a couple of weeks out from Christmas, it ain’t right”
The teacher said “I blame Trump for the fake war on Christmas.”
