|UK Red Cross Bans
Christmas in Shops
Christmas has been banned by the
Red Cross from its 430 fund-raising
shops in the United Kingdom,
according to a MailOnline report.
After staff members were directed to
remove any other signs of the
Christian holiday, there followed
criticism from both Christians and
Christine Banks, a volunteer at a
Red Cross shop in Kent, said: 'We
put up a nativity scene in the
window and were told to take it out.
It seems we can't have anything that
means Christmas. We're allowed to
have some tinsel but that's it.
'When we send cards they have to
say season's greetings or best
wishes. They must not be linked
directly to Christmas.
'When we asked we were told it is
because we must not upset Moslems.'
Banks added: ' We have been
instructed that we can't say
anything about Christmas and we
certainly can't have a Christmas
