Despite school administrators’ concerns nationwide, Americans strongly believe that Christmas should be a part of public schools. They feel just as strongly that religious symbols should be allowed on public property.

Seventy-five percent of American Adults think Christmas should be celebrated in public schools, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15 percent disagree, while 10 percent are not sure.

The survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on December 9-10, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- three percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

If Christmas traditions are observed in public schools, then no one should have no problem with equal time for those children who celebrate Jewish, Muslim, Kwansai observances either, will you...this country embraces a citizen's freedom to celebrate their faith (or lack thereof), so why would you want to deny others the privilege of celebrations of their faith snd only Christian observances allowed? Unless you want to outlaw all other faiths, granny...seriously un-American, granny!

Yes it should IF the emphasis is put on the real reason for celebration, the birth of Jesus Christ, and not just gifts being brought by Santa Claus
