Students across the country may have an additional book in their backpacks as they head to class Thursday.
Oct. 4 is the fifth year of Bring Your Bible to School Day, where students are encouraged to bring the religious tome to class with them.
Some users on social media have posted on their accounts that the Bring Your Bible to School Day was started by President Donald Trump. But that, according to Snopes, is incorrect.
According to Snopes, the movement was starting in 2014 by Focus on the Family. Focus on the Family is a Christian conservative group, or as it calls itself, a ministry, that says it helps couples build healthy marriages and teaching children about God and how He fits into the family structure.
Students are also encouraged to use the hashtag #BringYourBible on their social media accounts.
