A maths teacher a high school in Maine, USA has been allowed to keep her pink Hello Kitty Christmas tree her classroom. The tree was made pink plastic and was adorned Hello Kitty ornaments. The teacher, Catherine Gordon, had earlier been ordered the school principal Paul Butler to remove it after he decided it was an "inappropriate" Christmas decoration. Mr Butler explained to ABC News that he initially believed the tree did not fit the way the school celebrated the different religious events happening this time of the year. He said: "A concern was shared me regarding an inconsistency our balanced approach holiday observances."

Ms Gordon said: "I didn’t think a pink Hello Kitty tree was offensive….It's a tree that's been in my classroom years." She posted her story Facebook and it quickly went viral. She wrote: "The tree had no religious symbols it whatsoever. No crosses or angels, just pink Hello Kitties and my students really enjoyed it." She added that society was becoming too worried upsetting different people. She said: "I feel that this is definitely a turning point our society when everything offends everyone all the time. It just sucks the joy of everything." She told the local newspaper that: "It just seems that our quest to be tolerant everything, we've become intolerant everything."
