British Muslims and other minorities should celebrate Christmas and the politically correct brigade should not interfere, a senior minister will say today.
Baroness Warsi, Britains first Muslim Cabinet minister, will urge all minorities to join in with traditional British festivals.
The Conservative peer also discussed how she celebrated Christmas with her family and enjoyed carols. She insisted on sending out proper, traditional Christmas cards rather than bland multi-faith greetings. Why not? White people celebrate Diwali and Eid, she said. And we all enjoy Bonfire Night.

Is Bonfire Night where the Sunnis go light the Shia on fire and vice versa or is it more like a good old American camp fire where you invite your neighbors over for some s’mores?
Maybe you’re confusing that with Devil’s Night when they used to burn down all the houses in Detroit on Halloween.
(I think now they even gave up on doing that.)
Oh, the two ideas somehow blended, and you used to invite your neighbors to make s'mores over the burning corpses of those infidel twits.
Of course, the government now discourages the practice. S'mores may contain dreadful amounts of sugar, fat, and carcinogens, and burning people is not very carbon-neutral.
I know Muslims who celebrate Christmas. But then, they think Al Qaeda and related groups are all haram nut jobs.
I have always had a soft spot for Baroness Warsi, I pray she keeps her head down.
People who worship a murdering pedophile prophet have no business celebrating any of my religions holidays. Contrast the life of Mohammed with the life of Jesus Christ. Anyone with little or no real knowledge of the former knows there is no comparison to the latter.
Same here, and like the Muslims you know, they also consider Al-Qaeda, Saudis in general, and Wahabbi’s/fundamentalist whackos to be agents of the devil. But then again, the Muslims I know are predominantly Sufis. And though they’re mellow, they’re opinionated. :)
Remember, remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
Bonfire Night is held each year in the UK on the Fifth of November - also known as Guy Fawkes Day. It commemorates the events of the Fifth of November 1605 when Guy Fawkes was discovered underneath the Houses of Parliament surrounded by barrels of gunpowder intended to blow up the Parliament when the King came to open it. It was a plot by radical Catholics to destroy the Protestant government of Britain - an averted act of terrorism.
Bonfires were lit across England in celebration that the King's life had been spared, and it became a tradition to repeat this. Once they became available fireworks began to accompany the bonfires. Today, that's basically what you get - it's the traditional night for bonfires and fireworks in the United Kingdom. Sometimes an effigy of Guy Fawkes is burned on the bonfire. It used to be a distinctly anti-Catholic demonstration but that really stopped well over a century ago along with other forms of discrimination against Catholics.
