The Texas Legislature is spearheading a legislative backlash against those who wage war against Christmas.
The Texas House approved a bipartisan bill that removes legal risks of saying "Merry Christmas" in Texas public schools. State Rep. Dwayne Bohac (R-Houston) says the bill seeks to protect schools from "ridiculous" lawsuits.
Bohac said: "Teachers are fearful of calling a Christmas tree a Christmas tree."
Traditional holiday symbols, such as a menorah or nativity scene, would also win a nod of state support so long as more than one religion and a secular symbol are also reflected.
