Florida Senate Hard at Work: Bill Filed to Replace "Winter Break" With "Christmas Break"

Well, this gentleman to our left doesn't want to leave the "Christ" out of any title designating time off from school.

If anyone's ever looking to argue that the Florida Senate wastes its time on things that aren't relevant to Florida, or Planet Earth, point to Senate Bill 1136, submitted today by Sen. Stephen Wise.

Apparently what really needs to be changed in the Sunshine State is that period of heathen-time all the children get off from school in December. You may know it as "Winter Break."

Here's the entire text of the bill that made it from holier-than-thou Wise's brain to the Florida Senate:

Each school district shall refer to the period during which school is not in session and which includes Christmas Day as Christmas Break rather than Winter Break.

While we're at it, we'd like the Senate to consider forcing school districts to refer to "Winter Break" as "Festivus Break," May 5th as "Cinco de Mayo," and for January 23, 2012, let's call that one "农历新年."

Thanks for that.
