Accidental said:BUT..... how p*ed off must folk of other religions and cultures be when the shops and tv ram Christian festivals like Christmas and Easter down everyone's throats for months?!
Just a thought.
Well, surely not very much at all - if I moved to a foreign culture, I would expect things to be done differently - and depending on the culture I moved to within, I might not even expect my freedom of religious choice to be respected. The full-on commercial aspect of Christmas has very little to do with the religious festival that it is supposedly centred on! I'm sure that people who hold non-Christian (or indeed any) religious beliefs in this country find it as easy to overlook the sacred aspect of it all as I do.
