PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A 2017 calendar put out by a group that promotes tourism in Philadelphia doesn't include the month of December but that's a printing mistake, not a slight.

Paula Butler, vice president of communication for Visit Philadelphia, tells The Associated Press, "We love December. It's a great month and we would never delete it for any reason."

The group had about 400 calendars printed for distribution to media outlets and it proved so popular the group ordered another 200 or so, and that's when the mistake occurred.

The printer accidentally substituted one page for another, deleting December from the second batch of calendars. WTXF-TV first reported on the problem.

The calendar suggests tourism story ideas. A corrected version of the calendar is being sent to media that got the wrong one.
