University of Tennessee Chancellor Jimmy Cheek says a web post by the university's Office of Diversity and Inclusion urging employees to make sure their "holiday party is not a Christmas party in disguise" has been "totally misconstrued." The post said parties should not hold "games with religious and cultural themes," such as Secret Santa or Dreidel. It also said food and décor for any party should be general and not specific to any culture or religion. Cheek says the post was in no way trying to dismiss the importance of Christmas and was simply trying to make sure parties were inclusive of all cultures.
