    As absolutely beyond ridiculous as this article’s subject is, I’m just wondering, did this ‘teacher’ at least use her brain long enough to substitute ‘gay’ with the recognized alternate version of this song: “…Don we now our ‘bright’ apparel…”? Give me something, here!
    Methinks the teacher is the one who’s giggling, at any rate.
    Oh, and, btw, Mr. Kohler, there are no balls in this song, as far as I know. It’s “Deck the halls with ‘boughs’ of holly…”, or, again, in the alternate version,…”bells and holly…”. Don’t YOU start now! wink wink
