European Union Calendar Is Missing Christian Holidays

01.20.11 | Sarah Harnisch

The European Union has produced a new calendar for children, but something appears to be missing -- Christian holidays. The new calendar makes no reference to Christmas or Easter, but does include Muslim and Jewish holidays. The E.U. now says it was a mistake and promises future pintings of the calendar will include Christian celebrations. However, some critics are wondering how just one religion's holidays could be left off when others were included. Apparently, three million defective calendars have already been distributed to E.U. countries.
