A New York City primary school principal has been accused of banning the mention of Christmas by parents. Principal Eujin Jaela Kim reportedly scrubbed out any mention of the word ‘Christmas’, ‘Santa Claus’ and forbade explicit Christmas decorations. ‘We definitely can’t say Christmas, nothing with Christmas on it, nothing with Santa,’ PTA president Mimi Ferrer said administrators told her. ‘No angels. We can’t even have a star because it can represent a religious system, like the Star of David,’ she told the New York Post. In place of holidays with religious symbolism, children at PS 169 in Sunset Park, Brooklyn were instead encouraged to celebrate a ‘harvest festival instead of Thanksgiving or a winter celebration instead of a Christmas party’ by assistant principal Jose Chaparro. Ms Kim, 33, was in talks with the Superintendent this morning, the Daily Mail has learned, and was not immediately available for comment.  A memo last month from Mr Chaparro urged staff to ‘be sensitive of the diversity of our families. Not all children celebrate the same holidays.’ The school lists its 1,661 school roll as Asian 51 per cent, Black, 1 per cent, Hispanic, 43 per cent, and 4 per cent White.
