How would you feel if your son/daughter were to call you and say that the holiday decorations in his/her dorm's lounge all revolved around Hanukkah or Kwanzaa and there was not one bit of holiday decor evoking Christmas. Presumably some wouldn't care, but I expect many would be upset. I would be. So why can you not understand the reverse? In the lobby of the office building where I work, there are holiday decorations evoking each of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, and the inclusivity of it seems perfectly appropriate to me.
Students are encouraged to be more “diverse” by either focusing on winter instead of Christmas or by including decorations for multiple holidays[/ alongside secular decorations. (Emphasis mine)
