    OI I celebrate Christmas. Well, none of our family gives each other presents because, you know stingy Asians (or besides the fact that we get stuff for eid), but its the only time of the year where my mum always makes turkey, roast chicken with this awesome indian marinade and food other than chicken/beef curry with rice.

    so as the great Stormzy once said

    I met a Palestinian Christian from Bethlehem at an academic event a while back, and he said that pretty much everyone there celebrates Christmas, and that even a Bethlehem Muslim would never dream of not celebrating that Jesus was born in their home town. It's a point of local and national pride.

    The hypocrisy in this is so unreal. Many people in Britain who aren't even Christians celebrate the heck out of Christmas, so I don't see an problem with a Muslim celebrating it, anyways half of y'all celebrating it go on a rampage about how God doesn't exist and y'all say its utter bs, but still celebrate it? okkkk thenn

    Its not like a Christian celebrating Eid at all, England is a predominantly CHRISTIAN country so people celebrate it as a cultural thing I guess. I see your point but then again, shouldn’t it be as stupid for an atheist to celebrate Christmas (loads of whom do)?

    And Santa isn’t even part of the Christian religion so I would hardly agree that Christmas belongs to them
    I think Santa has a larger part to play in Christmas than Jesus does lol. Not much religion left in the festival.

    It’s nothing like Christians celebrating Eid. Christmas is as much a cultural celebration as it is a religious one now. It’s so funny how people moan that foreign populations don’t culturally assimilate then criticise the idea of it happening
    . That's the whole point. They DON'T celebrate Christmas. They DON'T integrate at all. It's Tesco that's trying to make us believe that they do, but those of us that have more than sawdust for brains can see it anyway

    If you truly are muslim, please tell me what the quran says at quran (2:191-193). Don't be shy, let everyone on here see for themselves that there is no way on Gods earth that faithful muslims would associate with kuffirs, but rather, kill them!

    Many muslims and non-christians celebrate christmas as an important part of British culture, not just as a Christian holiday commemorating the birth of Jesus.
    Jesus wasn't born on christmas

    Muslim speaking: A lot of Muslims are overreacting over this advert , Christmas isn’t even a religious festival anymore people don’t view it that way , more people are concerned over what they’re getting for Christmas than they’re about acknowledging Jesus. Christmas is a Christian thing but in England it’s also the time were everyone is either off work/school/university so people get together to end of the year with their loved ones. Even my Muslim family have a roast dinner with a big turkey straight after the queens speech, not because it’s Christmas because it’s the British culture adopted by everyone as a time to spend with your loved ones
