2014 is right around the corner! In celebration of the year passed and anticipation for coming year what will you be doing to celebrate? Will you be at the Clock Tower Downtown? At the Cocoanut Grove's annual NYE party? Grooving to some music at a local club? Making the journey to SF to celebrate? Or with friends and family at at home? At KSCO we would like to know how you will be celebrating the NEW YEAR!
Has Christmas lost its Sacred Spirit? Celebrating the birth of Jesus has given many people a good reason to visit family, enjoy in warm family traditions and of course, shop! Has Commercialism taken over the spirit of Christmas? Or can the two co-exist?
New legislation in Texas, dubbed the “Merry Christmas Law,” allows public school students and teachers to dress in Christmas-themed clothes and greet each other with the saying “Merry Christmas.” The law, backed by social conservative groups who say they want to fend off the political correctness, also covers Hanukkah. The “Merry Christmas Law” will allow students and teachers to sing songs, and put up trees and other decorations, as long as their actions don’t encourage adherence to particular beliefs. The law was approved almost unanimously by the Texas legislature earlier this year. Should more states enact such a law to protect these traditions? Or should religion be kept out of schools to protect separation of church and state?
