The lobbies of two libraries at the University of North Carolina are lacking a bit of holiday cheer. The two Christmas trees that are normally displayed there have been banished -- and you can blame it on political correctness.
The Charlotte Observer is reporting that librarians censored the display because employees complained.
Sarah Michalak, the associate provost for university libraries, told the newspaper: "We strive in our collection to have a wide variety of ideas. It doesn't seem right to celebrate one particular set of customs."
You might recall that UNC is a public university that once required its incoming freshmen to read a book about the Koran. (Ahem)
