How To Have a Inclusive, Culture-less, Non-Religious 'Christmas Party,' According To Universities

Imagine a Christmas party with no mistletoe, no Secret Santa or white elephant gifts, no Christmas cookie recipes passed down from generation to generation, no use of the word "Christmas," no reference to any religion, and no decorations combining the colors red and green.

It would probably be unrecognizable as a Christmas party, and that's what some politically correct universities, according to Campus Reform, are strongly recommending this Christma—err, I mean—holida—no—rather this late December winter season.

The University of Tennesee Knoxville makes these recommendations, among others, for your festive event:
1. "Holiday parties and celebrations should celebrate and build upon workplace relationships and team morale with no emphasis on religion or culture. Ensure your holiday party is not a Christmas party in disguise."
2. No "Secret Santa" due to its religious and culture-specific ties.
3. Refreshments and decor should not reflect any known culture.
4. Despite emphasizing no religion or culture as host, encourage your party-goers to share their own religions and cultures.
5. Better yet, make it a New Year's party instead so as it avoid any confusion.

Cornell University has established its own guidelines for which Christmas party decor violates the university's commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. It instructs students and staff to NOT include these:
1. Nativity scene
2. Angels
3. Mistletoe
4. Stars at the top of trees
5. Crosses

For Ohio State, the purpose of their Christmas parties is "to enhance relationships and work/life balance, engage in diversity awareness, inclusivity, and support fun at work" with minimal reference to a particular religion or culture. And to avoid the cultural exclusivity of Christmas, Ohio State states in its decoration guidelines that it would prefer that you don't use red and green bows.

It seems that some universities are intent on fostering a generation that actually DESPISES Christmas.
