Around 2011 our school district began slowly to discourage the celebrations of Valentine day and Halloween and replace them with all sorts of other celebrations. Many people may think this will hurt no-one.

I don’t think so. Which holiday will be next?

Holidays reflect the soul of the nation and often its history.

I oppose this as it resembles a practice held by communists, the purpose was to take away the identity of the nation and install communist holidays.

I think that especially for immigrant children it is important to keep the celebrations of traditional holidays at schools because it helps the students and their families to learn about American culture, way of life and also the history. It helps assimilation.
