European school diary includes Moslem and other feasts, but not Christian ones

Each year, the European Commission publishes a European school diary for schoolchildren throughout the European Union. Three millions copies of the 2010-2011 version of this diary, distributed to schools for free at the request of teachers, have been edited. The current version of this diary does not mention any christian feasts, but do give the dates of Islamic, Sikh, Hindu and Chinese feast days. It does not refer, for example, to Christmas, recently celebrated through all Europe.
You can sign a petition asking that

  • That the school diary, in its current version, may not be distributed.
  • That the future 2011-2012 diary explicitly mentions Christian holidays.
You can also read more at The European Union Times.
