Boys and girls at an Alabama elementary school will still get to hunt for eggs but they cant call them Easter Eggs have the principal banished the word for the sake of religious diversity.
We had in the past a parent to question us about some of the things we do here at school, said Heritage Elementary School principal Lydia Davenport. So were just trying to make sure we respect and honor everybodys differences.

Ironic... aren’t there pagan origins of the word “Easter”?
OK... OK... we won’t say “Easter” -
we’ll say “Jesus’ Resurrection Day”!
Wow..I read that Alabama is a very conservative state.
Too bad that pesky Bible show is on tv to remind everybody about it!
By screwing up for everybody BUT that one person...
Maybe a whole bunch of people should sue for the right to call them “Easter Eggs?”
And a whole anti-Christian policy is developed.
banning words like Easter is honoring and respecting everyone?
does he know the definition of “everyone”?
publik skoolz are the same everywhere, it doesn’t matter what state
Is that really how the principal said it?? Toastmasters/literacy program, anyone?
On top of it, so what. We have to bend over and give up everything for one person?
“Heritage Elementary School”
IS this satire?
Does he know the definition of respece? No.
Say it with a 7/11 Indian accent and it sounds right.
hmmm, Huntsville area.
Lydia Davenport needs to be charged with child abuse and treated accordingly.
Good grief, some touchy parent (s) to make a complaint over this. Easter is just the time of the season, these little kids can do the Easter egg hunts/games and fun activities and being outdoors (for exercise, too). People realize what the meaning of Easter is. This is an activity for small children. Get a life to those who want to punish the child’s innocent fun.
Isn't "Easter" a derivation of a heathen name for a Spring Celebration?
“A bunny is a bunny and a rabbit is a rabbit.
And an idiot is an idiot...
Even after this!!!!!!!!
