Boy in a Santa suit asked to leave "Holiday" dance
HAMPTON - A parent of a Hampton Academy Junior High School student says the
principal of the school told his son to leave the school’s holiday dance on
Friday night because the boy was dressed in a Santa Claus costume, which was
Principal Fred Muscara said he told the boy he couldn’t get into the dance
because he was wearing the costume.
"It was a holiday party," said Muscara.
"It was not a Christmas party. There is a separation of church and state. We
have a lot of students that go to Hampton Academy Junior High that have
different religions. We have to be sensitive to that."
When asked what the word "holiday" meant, Muskrat said, "uh..uh.. BUSH LIED! HALLIBURTON!"
I guess we live in a world where "details" aren't important. What is a holiday? Well, it is defined as:
1. A day free from work that one may spend at leisure, especially a day on which custom or the law dictates a halting of general business activity to commemorate or celebrate a particular event.
2. A religious feast day; a holy day.
What particular event? Shhh... don't let Jesus out of the bag...
