Have you heard this one? Wait, here is a disclaimer before I even start. If you want to keep up some delusion of the greatness of the country and faith in humanity at Christmas time, don’t read further. This story makes me cringe.
Let’s start at the beginning. It was a lovely morning in Prince William County, Virginia near Christmas. At one public high school a group of 10 boys gets together wearing hideous Christmas sweaters and singing carols to their fellow students. They call themselves the Christmas Sweater Club and I think it sounds like a very nice thing to do.
If that is not enough Christmas Cheer, the boys began to hand out those small candy canes wrapped in plastic. This is where it goes downhill on a greased rocket sled. The boys get detention and disciplinary action for their kind and fun loving actions.
They were accused of trying to maim and injure fellow students, with the mini candy canes! I was unaware of the lethality of the Candy Cane besides getting it stuck in your throat. Apparently, you can sharpen the candy cane with your mouth and use it to inflict harm. I was not aware of this but there it is. Don’t stare too closely at the picture over there, you could poke your eye out.
These kids are also getting nailed for littering and creating a disturbance. It seems the principal had told them that not everyone wants Christmas cheer and they should keep it to themselves. What a crock of reindeer poop. I know of one principal that should be on Santa’s Naughty list and probably deserves a swift kick in the pants from the rest of the country.
I hope that this doesn’t discourage these fine young men from continuing to spread the Christmas cheer to their fellow man. We need Christmas and things to belive in without so much hate as this principal seems to have. Screw her, good luck to these kids.
Here is a link to the video of the story from the local news. Watch it and try not to be outraged, then tell me what you are thinking in the comments below. Especially you, sitting there reading this who hasn’t commented before. Yes you in the blue shirt. Please comment already!
Also, share on the social networks if you would be so kind…Thank you and Merry Christmas. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, Happy Holidays. If you don’t celebrate holidays, we could probably use a guest post because you are more cantankerous than I am.
