Texas Gov. Rick Perry today signed House Bill 308, which removes any legal risks of saying “Merry Christmas” in Texas public schools.

The bill also allows public schools to use holiday greetings and display religious symbols on school property, so long as more than one religion and a secular symbol are also reflected.

“I’m proud we are standing up for religious freedom in our state,” Gov. Perry said. “Freedom of religion doesn’t mean freedom from religion, and people of faith often feel like they can’t express that faith publicly. HB 308 works to address that by ensuring that people of all faiths are free to use traditional holiday greetings, and display religious scenes and symbols, even on school property. It ensures freedom of expression where, for many students, teachers and administrators, it’s most important.”
