I'm certain a significant number of non-Christians and even atheists are part of the 75% who favor public school celebrations of Christmas. It doesn't exclusively require faith in Christ to be reasonable and patriotic.

Sure, I'm an atheist secularist and I think it is out-of-bounds to forbid using the word 'Chrismas' at public schools. Let them say "Merry Christmas!' at school all they want. I say it myself, particularly if someone says it to me first or it's Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. It's the name of the holiday celebrated by most on Dec25. As long as it's not a problem to say 'Happy Holidays' or 'Happy Hannukah' or 'Happy Chrismahannakwanzika!', it shouldn't be a problem to say 'Merry Christmas!'.

Then those non-Christians and atheists should speak up and tell these activists to quit pretending they represent all non-Christians and atheists.

I think this is a case of a school administration thinking the rules were more stringent than they actually are. There's no law or ruling preventing schools from using the word 'Christmas'.
