In what possibly might be the greatest bill to become a law in this history of the United States, Texas Governor Rick Perry is set to sign legislation that protects schools who have teachers who say, “Merry Christmas.”

While the bill itself is awesome with icing, it’s a pretty sad state this country is in where we have to pass laws legalizing saying, “Merry Christmas.” How nutty have we become?

The bill also protects religious symbols such as nativity scenes and menorahs.

Reportedly, several Santa Claus impersonators rang sleigh bells in the public gallery. Presumably, Santa will be forced to go on the lam in the other 49 states.
