I thought people might be interested in knowing what the 'results' were of my informal Christmas poll, sans names.

Question 1: Americans -- Is the US a Christian nation?
Yes: 50%
No: 50%

Question 2: Non-Americans -- Is the US a Christian nation?
Yes: 33.3%
No: 66.7%

(Of course some had qualifiers *g*)

And on the question Is Christmas a religious (1) or secular (10) holiday?, the average response was 5.85.

That was fun! Let's make another.

(By the way, these are hypothetical questions that I've read about in Gibson's book. If you don't actually have a kid in an American public school, just pretend.)

Question 4: In your kid's public school, is it a Christmas tree or holiday tree?

Christmas tree
11(68.8%)
holiday tree
3(18.8%)
no tree
2(12.5%)

Question 5: On the school calendar, is it a Christmas break or winter break?

Christmas break
7(43.8%)
winter break
8(50.0%)
no break
1(6.2%)

Question 6: Is Santa Claus a religious symbol?

Yes
1(5.9%)
No
15(88.2%)
Maybe/I don't know
1(5.9%)


Have fun!
