So, my second grader comes home yesterday asking me if Halloween is "the devil's birthday?" I say, "No, who told you that?" - thinking that one of his friends said that to him on the playground.
Nope...one of his teachers in our very PUBLIC elementary school told her students that they shouldn't celebrate Halloween because, if they do, they are helping the devil celebrate his birthday.
I told my son that if she ever says anything like that again, he has my permission to tell her she is being inappropriate for school.
Now, I'm trying to decide if I want to throw one devil of a fit or not.
