A few years ago a Seattle school banned Halloween because it was offensive to Wiccans. Now they are messing with Easter eggs because they are offensive to ????

I'm not religious but we have always enjoyed celebrating traditional American holidays like Easter and Christmas. We don't care if the roots of the holiday aren't pure. What holiday is pure?

We need a new slogan printed on our tee shirts, something like "Hands off my holidays".

Im trying really hard to wrap my head around this one.
Spheres??? Really??? Eggs are not sphere shaped!
I can wrap my head around bunny balls! Good one!
So who is offended by Easter eggs?
And since when are wiccans offended by Halloween? It is one of their holidays.

Crazy crazy crazy....

Spring OVOIDS is what they should be called. They are not spheres, so if these folks are going to be "PC", can they at least get the "C" part???
