University Bans Christmas Event as “Too Christian” . . .

. . . and uninclusive

The University of Mississippi has decided it will no longer hold the “A Grand Ole Christmas” event that has been held on campus for the last six years because the name of the event is “too Christian.”

In a statement to News Watch 99, Kayp Maye, the co-director of special events for the Student Activities Association, said the former name of the event “connoted too much Christianity on campus and so we wanted to have a more inclusive environment for the holidays this year.”
