National Trust 2024 Calendar Omits Christian Holidays


The National Trust of England, a charity and membership organization for heritage conservation, recently released its 2024 “inclusivity and wellbeing” calendar, according to a report in the Telegraph. The almanac is distributed annually to volunteers. Particularly attentive members noticed that, of all holidays for consideration in the erstwhile Christian nation, Christmas and Easter go unmentioned. A volunteer raised the issue at the heritage group’s annual meeting, already contentious due to accusations that the Trust rigged an election in the manner of American Democrats, to get preferred candidates voted in.

Some members were understandably upset that Christian holidays were deliberately excluded from the calendar, the more so because holidays such as Diwali, Eid and Ramadan were not.

Moreover, the calendar recognized Black History Month, LGBT+ History Month, and Transgender Awareness Week, among other “holidays” and observances.

Saint Patrick’s Day? Yes. Notting Hill Carnival? You bet. Christmas? Easter? Nah.

Priorities, right?
