Including Pagan and Wiccan Holidays on School Calendars
Sun, 02-17-2013 - 5:51pm

Pagan and Wiccan holidays are now on the calendar with other holidays at the University of Missouri.  The university's "Guide to Religions," which helps faculty schedule exams and classes around holidays, now includes eight Wiccan and Pagan holidays in an effort to include everyone's beliefs.

Of course, the inclusion of these days has induced some criticism with one person calling it "an excuse to do nothing."

What do you think about the school's decision to include these holidays in it's Guide to Religions?
