After a six year run, Ole Miss has decided that their winter festival event should no longer be called, "A Grand Ole Christmas."

That's because organizer spokesperson Kaypounyers Maye, co-director of special events for the Student Activities Association (SAA), says "'Grand Ole Christmas' connoted too much Christianity on campus and so we wanted to have a more inclusive environment for the holidays this year." Video here.

So this year, Ole Miss will celebrate "Hotty Toddy Holiday" in an effort to be more politically correct.
