What's their reasoning? Have they given one or is it the usual 'it'll offend other religions' tosh?

My daughter was not allowed to make me a fathers day card at nursery, so she didnt offend anyone, so they made to someone special cards instead. Country has gone PC mad

they havent given a reason, the store i work at had to cancel everything they had planned.

It's getting to the stage where the only time you can use the name of Jesus Christ is as a swear word, that doesn't offend anyone in this politically correct liberal and mad UK.

When I asked about this at my daughters school I was told it was because there are quite a few single parent families. I pointed out that they make mothers day cards and some kids in single parent families are with their dad, i was just told it was the way things were :x

There are about 20 rows of Halloween goodies in my local Asda. Not a problem to me, but how come it's okay to celebrate witches and ghosts during this pagan festival but Christmas is banned???!!!:x

Me too Hannah! :-( It's pretty pathetic!

Not got a problem with it tbh. Christmas hasn't had sod all to do with religion for.. well like forever. Unless the religion happens to be Mammon.

There is no way Asda won't push Crimbo to the limit.

THe only reason there won't be tree or singers is that it probably takes up too much shelf space.

Bahhh Humbug

If the banks hadn't all gone mad or bust from giving away too much money, I would take out a big loan and I would move from the UK. We 'embrace' all people and religions, but shove our holiday celebrations in the corner when it comes to 'it might offend people'. Stuff them, no-one made them come here. Either suck it up or ship out. You've gotta be blunt if it means we can live with a bit of normality and loosen the reins.

If OFFENDED, then don't SHOP at Asda!!!

I think its rediculas, as well as the mothers and fathers day thing to.
Why can't shops celebrate christmas, we live in England, we celebrate Christmas here, it is only in the past few years we have not been allowed because it might offend the people who came here from other countrys. They should not be here anyway, England is screwed with money but yet they still let immigrents in who take alot of the money.
Next it will be no Christmas decorations allowed in the home incase someone walks past and finds the offencive, We have christmas sales so why not have decorations, they are still celebrating by putting items on sale for christmas and after chrsitmas.
As for the mothers/fathers day cards, that is betond stupid, making mothers day cards can offend children who do not have mothers, so why not bann them aswell.
This country is so one sided and hypricrital its getting rediculas.
What happened to freedom and being able to do what ever you want (within reason) and celebrating this which you have done you're whole life

sod em all.

and for the recored, christmas, or Yule, is a pagan festival, that christians put there celebration on to try and convert the pagans to being christian, so they still got there celebrations.

christmas trees are also pagan, but have become associated with a traditional christmas.

I was told exactly the same thing, must be the standard answer issued by the Education Authority - sad really

I said pretty much the same thing in the RAMADAN thread, and got a warning for it :roll:

Ironically, in the same post was saying they ban Christmas stuff incase they offend people :whistling:

Has anyone got a link to a REAL story on tbis - as the Daily Mail isn't appalled yet I'm assuming that it's just a rumour or there's more to it than meets the eye
#25
Some things i can understand to a certain extent.
But things like this really rile me.
Its just not fair at all!

i work in Asda and we were told this by the manager. to make things worse they are still making us pay for the new christmas uniform as we not allowed to wear the old one we have only worn it twice.
#27
I wouldn't work anywhere that made me pay for my own uniform. If they want me to wear one, then they can pay for it out of their own pocket, not my wages!

Unfortunately for most, quitting really isn't an option due to the fact they need the money. I do agree however that you should all get together in the one store and organise carollers. They're not going to sack all of you for it. If they even tried this I'd go to the national press with it - they'd have a field day!!

If your money could get you out of this country so you can feel a sense of freedom and normality, then hop on an easyjet flight out of here... I'd join you!

The only problem is, my passport expired yesterday :cry:

Rep to you for offering to be my companion, maybe next time x x x

I spoke with a customer service manager at ASDA house and she has denied that this is their policy at all and that ASDA stores will be having the Christmas tree displays and carols as previous years.
