There's another one!


And this one is a flippin' Tory Council! Havant has outlawed the word Christmas and banned Santa’s grotto from its shopping centre because of the fire risk! It must be true - it's in The Sun!The annual £5,000 display of Christmas lights partly funded by local businesses, is being renamed the “Festival of Lights”.

“Festival of Lights”? I ask you, surely this could offend the Hindus!

Still you could argue that Christmas itself 'borrowed' the pre-existing Yule festival from British pagans, so the mid-winter festival losing its religious status is merely a return to normal.

Here's hoping for a Happy Winterval.. Bah humbug! I LOVE Christmas!

So that will mean they have to have a switching on of the "Festival of Lights", what is this country coming to. Next we will have " the seven vertically challenged men" on Christmas television, I presume you are allowed to say Christmas!!
