Despite continuing legal challenges, more adults than ever favor the celebration of all religions in the public schools. Most also still believe religious displays should be permitted on public land.

That includes 50% who believe all religious holidays should be celebrated. Just 15% think public schools should not recognize any religious holidays. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
