Cherry Knoll Elementary School Principal Chris Parker told television station WPBN on Monday that he was disappointed with the decision to make the change to “Deck the Halls” after children kept giggling.

One line in the popular version of the song is “Don we now our gay apparel,” referring to festive holiday clothing.

Parker said it’s a teachable moment for the educator and students at the school in the Traverse City Area Public Schools district.

The students have a concert this month where they’ll perform Christmas songs.
