Revealing the truth about Christmans, New Year’s Eve, St. Valentine’s Day Easter and Halloween.
This study is intended to provide clear information about religious-based, cultural events that have been accepted as “national” celebrations, but are really peculiar to specific belief systems. The world has undoubtedly become a global village where the influence of people on each other is profound. Events that occur in a village in India or near the Great Wall of China can be beamed into the homes of people in America and Africa. It is, therefore, critical for Muslims and people of conscience to have insight and knowledge of religious history and culture, so that they are able to analyse dominant cultural trends and put them into the proper perspective.
