Religiously incorrect reindeer

    When Adam Benjamin walked into a West End of London shop and asked about Chanucah cards, he was offered a "Chanukmas" selection for those who celebrate both Christmas and the Jewish festival of lights.

    But beside pictures of Santa Claus lighting a menorah and "Three Weiss Men", he was stunned to find a card featuring Rudolph, "the hook-nosed reindeer".

    Mr Benjamin complained that the card was "outright offensive".

    A New Cards spokes-man said: "We removed it from sale immediately. We employ Jewish people here who don't find it offensive and the card came from a Jewish company originally. But if people are offended by it, we won't sell it."

    The shop, ironically, is in Beak Street.
