Good Morning Britain published this video item, entitled “Is ‘Happy Christmas’ As Opposed To ‘Happy Holidays’ Insensitive? | Good Morning Britain” – below is their description.
The European Commission is attempting to put an end to gendered words such as “man-made” and “ladies and gentlemen” and replace them with neutral phrases like “human-induced” and “dear colleagues”.
Staff at the EU’s Brussels-based executive are told not to assume that everyone is Christian, white and married, and encouraged to use examples and images of people from a diverse range of ethnic, religious or cultural backgrounds.
It recommends refraining from referring to Christmas, instead using the phrase “holiday season”.
