Really, You Have to Rewrite “Deck the Halls” to remove "Gay"

Some people have too much time on their hands. Teacher strips word "gay" from Christmas carol : News : UpNorthLive.com
The music teacher at Cherry Knoll removed the word "gay" from the song Deck the Halls because the children kept giggling. Instead students were taught to sing "don we now our bright apparel".
I thought they removed Christmas from public schools. You know, as part of the War on Christmas™. I guess "Deck the Halls" made the cut because of all those Yule references. (It must be a Wiccan song.)

UPDATE: Some perspective on the War On Christmas.

Apparently they're having a war on words here.

What the hell?!
