Oklahoma Lawmakers Moving Forward With ‘Merry Christmas’ Bill


The Oklahoma House of Representatives approved legislation Tuesday that allows public school students, teachers, and staff to say "Merry Christmas" without fear of reprimand.

The house voted 73-10, sending the bill to the Senate.

Bill author Rep. Bobby Cleveland, R-Norman, says the measure protects people who use the greetings “merry Christmas,” “happy Chanukah” and “happy holidays.”

A proposal to include Kwanzaa was tabled.

Opponents of the bill think it’s a waste of time because these greetings are already allowed.
