Happy ” O’Green Day ” ?

Really doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it? Lisa Curtin, an elementary school principal in Massachusetts renamed St. Patrick’s Day to “O’Green Day” to make it “inclusive and diverse” for all the students at Soule Road School. How politically correct of her! Parents of students at the school, however, think she might be taking things a little too far.

Janet Carlyle, whose three children attended the school,  told Fox News “It’s really stupid. Everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s not a holiday that’s generally associated with a religion.”

“I think it’s ridiculous,” said Dina LaMotte, whose daughter is a fifth-grader at the school. “What’s next, birthdays?”

Apparently, Valentine’s Day wasn’t working for Curtin either, who renamed that holiday “Caring and Kindness Day”.

What do you think– is this principal going overboard?
