There was something in the news a couple of years back where a nativity play somewhere was cancelled to appease the “locals”
Who cares!

Merry Xmas everyone. My apologies for having an opinion.

We get these rumours every year. As far as I recall they've all amounted to

(1) there was in fact no such incident reported in the news
(2) there was such a report in the news but it was a lie.

As ever, I'd be inclined to wonder whose "news" , and how accurately reported ..

I have only once met a group of avowedly religious people, Christian or not, who opposed the celebration of Christmas. They were a community of Christian Pentecostalists in Canada, in a self-isolated settlement by choice. They believed that celebrating anything in the religious calendar other than Pentecost was 'heathen'. I have no idea whether this attitude is typical even of 'mainstream' Pentecostalists. I have never met any equivalent objection to Christmas celebration among any variety of observant Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist,Hindu, .. and I've known well all such.

There is a specific Arabic language greeting by which Arabs (Muslim and Christian) and other Muslims wish Christians a Merry Christmas. I always use it this time of year to visitors to JAM in apparently Muslim dress. They nearly always recognise it and reciprocate. :thumright:

Id ul-Milad Mubarak to all Forumites of any faith or none :)
