Mansoor Ladha: Everyone, regardless of their religion, can embrace Christmas | Calgary HeraldBy Mansoor Ladha

One stormy, wintry night, I was looking out my front window. I could see the snow blowing on the empty street ahead.

Our street, called Christmas Lane, was decorated with bright coloured lights and decorations.

Every mid-November, neighbour Greg, dubbed “self-styled Santa,” eagerly took it upon himself to remind every one on the street that it was time to decorate for the festive season. He didn’t care about the mounting power bills, or that some seniors couldn’t afford to light up so soon, or that some of us were Muslims, and so Christmas had no religious significance.
