Indian upset over rule changes for Christmas when there were none for Eid or Diwali. Is that because Christmas is a public holiday in the UK?

    Remember how the Daily Mail got their readers to hate Muslims during Eid (in the warm Spring days). Many had listened to Imams and stayed indoors, but what did the DM decide to do, act like spoilt children, complaining about those who had to work 'spreading their diseases' - with it quickly becoming a 'racist' thing, rather than 'religion' - and with the weather lovely, and everyone breaking the rules. 

    Now, come Christ-mas - with most of us lot not bothered with 'church' nowadays, we'll want to get pissed and give it all we've got. I'm sure the DM will tell Muslim readers how selfish and hypocritical we are.

    Nah!  LOLLY.

    How will the Tory lapping businesses clean up £££££££££££££££££ if there's a lockdown?

    Or how will they donate so generously to keep Tory party afloat!

    Not as if Boris their man, has done them any favors so far! May as have been asleep since he's been propped into power!

    Business are going to the wall, bankrupt!

    So far Brexit Boris has yet to deliver on anything!

    Amazingly come Christmas covid 19 will cower, and back down cos Boris says so!

    Has anyone told that to covid 19 to disobey Brexit Boris will be a mega disaster?

    Covid 19 versus Brexit Boris. So far covid 19 = 10/10

    Santa Claus was Indian. Think about it, a chubby man in a red suit with a big white beard. Because he's Gurjurati

    Anonymous - actually, going to church and singing carols does not preclude being with your family - they could all be singing along with you - except that they can't because churches are closed at the moment for everything except private prayer.

    Oh, and many of those at Midnight Mass, when the churches open again, will be from India. There are quite a lot of Catholics there.

    It is also a fact that many businesses rely on Christmas for a lot of their sales.

    Please do us the small favour of not posting your self called questions???? in categories that have nothing to do with their subject matter.

    It is because people who celebrate a truly religious festival are denied their celebration because of Covid-19 restrictions, while those who celebrate Christmas as a secular buy-fest are allowed to party.

    By the way, I cannot worship in church this Christmas or visit my family, so I feel akin to those who could not celebrate their special days.

    probably has a lot more to do with businesses not being able to make money at Christmas

    Throwing caution to the wind for one day, especially after we've all been in lockdown for a month or so, seems particularly stupid.

    Covid doesn't magically stop spreading just because it's Christmas day.

    If you want to kill Grandma and granddad then have a family Christmas

    In short. yes. Christianity is very much a minority hobby in the UK so Christmas is a secular not religious festival for most people. If you want to sit in a church and sing cheesy carols then go for it. The rest of us want to eat, drink and be with our families.
