    Has anybody here celebrated Eid or Diwali even if (like most people who celebrate Christmas) you don't follow the religions? Some primary schools hold celebrations for them.
    My Junior school which had a prominent Muslim population and the school had marked Eid. In fact, a few years back there was some controversy when it coincided with Christmas which briefly made the national news - the school were about to do a nativity play and other Christmas events, and they were pushed aside for the Eid celebrations. The far-right groups were getting excited about it as would be expected. I think that at the end of the day, if two religions have plans for celebrations at the same time then that should mean twice the reason to celebrate life!

    They also did Diwali but I think that the difference is that the lights and fireworks (more prominently seen in places like Leicester) nicely fit in quite closely to Guy Fawkes Night almost every year. I had a best friend in Infant school who was Hindu, I think, so I was aware of the culture of that.

    A few years I went to a Diwali festival because my then half Indian girlfriend & her family were going.

    IMO St. Patrick's Day has been hijacked by Guinness.
    Seems Hollywood may of taken the idea and just ran with it....

    The two nationalities who make a big celebration of New Year are the Chinese and the Scottish.
