Christmas in England
The redoubtable Cranmer describes the omission of Christmas from the latest EU calendar for children. Said calendar includes the religious holidays of Jews, Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus, but not Christians.
If true, we're shocked, but not surprised.
However, we're glad to report that we attended a Christmas Eve service in Winchester Cathedral and a Christmas Day service in Christ Church, Winchester. Both were packed to overflowing with families and children and full of joy.
