Christmas at the mosque

By Simon Rocker, November 26, 2009

The reindeer are glittering again on lamp-posts, office workers are placing orders for mistletoe and down at the East London Mosque they are making preparations for an “imams and rabbis’ Christmas dinner”.

The novel interfaith nosh-up has been arranged for the day before Christmas Eve by dialogue groups Children of Abraham and Scriptural Reasoning. No turkey though, just kosher and halal fish and veggie options, along with soft drinks of course and crackers pulled “in solidarity with our Christian friends”.

I am sure they will look lovely in their Santa hats.
