U. Minnesota Memo: Wrapped Gifts, Trees, Santa Inappropriate

U. Minnesota Memo: Wrapped Gifts, Trees, Santa Inappropriate

“Also included are decorations themed around the colors of red and green”

So basically, anything that will even remotely remind people that it’s Christmas time is inappropriate. Got it.

The College Fix reports:

University memo: wrapped gifts, Santa, Christmas trees ‘not appropriate’

A memo provided to some University of Minnesota community members at a recent event dedicated to discussing how to make the holiday season on campus more inclusive warns against Santa, Christmas trees, wrapped gifts and the colors “red and green,” calling them “not appropriate.”

The recommendations were circulated at a recent “Dean’s Dialogues” event hosted by the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences focused on “respecting religious diversity.”

The “Religious Diversity and Holidays” memo lists about a dozen separate items it says should not be used, asserting they represent “religious iconography.”

The items, which the document describes as “not appropriate,” include bows, bells, depictions of Santa Claus, Christmas trees, wrapped gifts, nativity scenes, the star of Bethlehem, dreidels, angels and doves. Also included are decorations themed around the colors of red and green or blue and white.

These joyless scolds remind me of the proverbial aunt who gives the kids underwear and socks for Christmas.

Just because they have miserable Christmas memories doesn’t mean they have to piss on everyone else’s holiday as well. Perhaps their colleagues can chip in and get them some psychotherapy / counseling sessions as a Christmas present. Sounds like they have unresolved issues they need to work through.

Perhaps a visit from Marley’s ghost is in order.

Yeah, right.

How long before they try to banish religious practice in our own homes …
