'Christmas' Missing From School Calendar Angers Residents

(NBC 17)- Some people in New Hanover County are upset that school officials decided to use the word “holiday” instead of “Christmas” for their official school calendar.
WECT reports the choice, made by the New Hanover County Board of Education, has angered some Christians.
The 2011-2012 calendar also does not list Easter and the word “holiday” is used. Meanwhile all other holidays such as Veteran’s Day and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day are clearly identified and labeled.
“I think that they’ve offended a lot of people,” Theresa McCoy, owner of Cox Christian Bookstore, told WECT. “[They have offended] the Christians who love God and the Christians that want to talk about Christmas.”
NBC-17 checked 2010-2011 online calendars for some local schools to see how they worded the days.
Wake County Public Schools list all holidays as a simple “H.”
Durham lists Good Friday as “spring holiday” and Christmas as “winter holiday”, while wording all other holidays.
Orange County names every individual holiday, including Good Friday, but lists Christmas as “winter vacation”; and Johnston County names every holiday, including Christmas and Good Friday.

I could understand being upset if this was a private Christian school, but since it is public school there is no reason to be upset.
