The answer to "What can non-Christian children do?" is enjoy the festival and join in the fun. We enjoyed all cultural festivals held in the streets of New York. The same enjoyment should apply in the schools. The Oktoberfest, Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, Italian, Greek, Irish, etc., all festivals should be respected, preserved and enjoyed in America. People spend thousands of dollars and time their vacations to coincide with foreign festivals. We are lucky, we have them in our own back yard.
