LETTER: Scandal of Euro diary that doesn’t contain Christian festivals

Have your say

It’s bad enough that more than 330,000 copies of glossy diaries have been doled out to British schools by the EU Commission at tax-payers’ expense.

What is worse is that they exclude mention of Christmas Day and all other Christian festivals but include Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Jewish and Chinese festivities. And, of course, Europe Day and other key EU anniversaries.

Christianity is the EU’s majority religion but even on the commission’s Christmas cards there is no reference to religion and just bears the words “Season’s Greetings.”

This is out of order and I am highly sceptical about the diary omission being described by a commission spokesman as “a blunder”. And their proposal to correct this in future years? To make no mention of any religious festivals at all. So the EU communist bloc rolls on.
