Norwood voters this week approved a symbolic measure demanding that the School Committee call winter break "Christmas break."
Voters approved the directive by a vote of 2,324 to 733 during the annual town election Monday.
The move came two years after a School Committee member made a motion to call the seasonal recess "winter break," according to MyFoxBoston.com.
"Our country is based on belief in God," Jim Drummey told Fox. "The Declaration of Independence mentions God five different times so that's an important part of our tradition and we don't think it should be tossed aside for old man winter."
Though the vote was non-binding, Drummey said he hoped the School Committee would listen to the voters.
