Children at Cottonwood Heights Elementary School in in the Jordan School District passed up Christmas red and green Tuesday in favor of red and blue.

The occasion was an assembly to kick off a fitness program, and the red and blue represented (what else?) Brigham Young University and the University of Utah. Students backed their favorite school by dressing accordingly.

Athletes from the two schools - Marty Haws of the BYU basketball team and Eric Jacobsen of the U.'s football team - told the elementary school students how to stay fit and healthy.
