Sarah Michalak,UNC-Chapel Hill's associate provost for university libraries has decided that the Christmas trees that have traditionally decorated the two main libraries will remain in storage this year.
Michalak said she made the decision following complaints from library employees and patrons bothered by the Christmas trees.
"We strive in our collection to have a wide variety of ideas," she said. "It doesn't seem right to celebrate one particular set of customs."
OK.....rather than ban Christmas trees, why not display Jewish and Muslim decorations during their religious celebrations?
Geeze....the libraries could even put up atheists' decoration for whatever holiday they celebrate.
Merry Christmas, Ms. Michalak.
