Christmas Break is still being called "Christmas break" in the Hillsboro School District. Board members voted, four-to-three, to keep the name for the two-week period of time off in December even though many other districts have switched the name to "Winter Break." One Board Member pushing for change says there's Spring Break and Summer Break. A Board Member against the switch says the name is part of tradition.  A similar debate has been happening in Prineville recently. Earlier this week City Council members talked about whether they should expand a nativity scene display include different religions and beliefs, and to change the name from "Christmas" to "Holiday" display; but Councilors are evenly divided on the issue, so it hasn't been decided yet.
