A nursery in North Somerset says it has been banned from using glitter on its Christmas cards.
The group which runs at the St Georges Community Centre in Worle, near Weston-super-Mare, was told it could damage highly-polished wooden floors.
A spokeswoman for the hall's owner said it was not a matter of complaining over the glitter as such but rather sorting out who cleaned the floor afterwards.
Parents have launched a petition to try to get the ban overturned.
'Fun and sparkle'
Tracey Calvert from the nursery said it appreciated other people used the hall but Christmas was a time when children loved to make cards.
"We've been told by the owners not to use glitter because of it spilling on to the floor.
"But Christmas is about glitter, fun and sparkle and we're quite upset about it.
"We try our best to keep the hall clean and clean up as we go but we have to be out on time," she added.
