Does Spelling Count?

This past Saturday my town held it’s annual Holiday Parade. My youngest daughter’s Catholic School Spirit Squad entered a float. The girls, who are 3rd, 4th & 5th graders, rode on the float. They sang Christmas songs and yelled some of their cheers. I volunteered to walk along side the float to make sure nobody fell off. My oldest daughter was going to tag along with me but she was put in charge of the music and got to ride on the float at the last minute. Needless to say we had a great time!

I was walking at the very back of our float all night long and I kept thinking something just doesn’t look right. I thought the banner on the float was misspelled but I didn’t want to say anything just in case I was wrong.

Right after we passed the judges station the person who made our banner said: “I hope they don’t count for spelling!”

I just started cracking up as did all of the other parents helping out!


Here are a few of our comments:
“Leave it to a Catholic School to take Christ out of Christmas!”
“Just think we pay extra for this education!”
“I don’t think this is going to help our enrollment any!”

Leave it to a Catholic School to spell Christmas wrong!
