This is a few days old, but still a big *facepalm*
The old urban legend about a school banning red and green is back, this time directed at an elementary school in Texas.
An elementary school in Frisco, Texas is believed to be the first in the state to violate “The Merry Christmas Law” after they banned Christmas trees and the colors red & green from an upcoming “winter” party.
Except, no they didn’t. From the same article, just five paragraphs down:
The school district released a statement to MyFoxDFW.com noting:
“The school was unaware of this and it was not an official PTA correspondence either. There have never been any limitations on what students wear, what they bring to share with their classmates on party days … what greetings people exchange with each other.”
But hey, why let a little thing like reality get in the way.
Here’s the schools offical statement from their website: friscoisd.org
