Primary school bans certain Christmas Carols

Baby, it's cold outside. Listen to the forum roar. Our mods will start to worry

The primary school Mattschulhaus in Wil SG banned "Go Tell It on the Mountain", "Fröhliche Weihnacht überall", and "S grööschte Gschänk" from its advent festive and performances.

It is said that in the previous two years two parents have raised objections during the performances (the news articles notes that at least in the previous year the objecting parent was not of the Islam faith. Religious affiliation of the other parent is not stated).

Although, the articles makes a strong connection between the Christian tradition and objection by Islamist and Secularist it is actually not known why those three particular songs were banned. From the list of approved songs it is only known that at least "Stille Nacht (Silent Night)" is on it.
