What could possibly be offensive about candy canes? Their refreshing flavor? The color red? Or is it because when flipped upside down, they look like the letter "J". And the "J" obviously stands for "Jesus" since Christmas is his birthday.
"We are not to be doing any Christmas or holiday-specific themed activities with students. Santa and Christmas items are not to be on activities or copies... (candy canes) the shape is 'J' for Jesus. The red is the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection."
Uh... I don't recall learning that one in Sunday school.
This means the celebration OF NOTHING!!!
I think we should ban snow because it's... white.
Here's a thought-- why not TEACH the children all the different "Christmas" celebrations and their history; teach them about Hanukkah, Kwanzaa. Wait. That would make sense.
I can think of many other things this supposed "J" could symbolize in regards to this princidouche, but two come to mind: Jerk & Jackass.
