Subject:
wondering....
Description:


ektu agey amake ekjon jiggesh korlo...muslim hoye christmas wish kora ki worst naki..ami uttor e temon kichu na vebei ... bollam...
'worst na..but a muslim doesnt wish another one merry christmas....but yeah ..u can wish the christian community or ur friends who are christians'

.... tarpor ki vebe jeno ulta prosno korlam ami...'hv u ever seen a christian wishing another christian on eid?'...uttor was a straight and simple "na"

then why do we(jara Muslim) wish everyone merry christmas?..ekta karon hote pare... amra shuvechha ta shobaike dite chachi.....kintu there could be other ways of passing shuvechha/wishing..tai na??

another thing that popped up in my mind is that... onek Muslim kei dekhi... onek moja kore..anondo kore...they celebrate April 1, or april first. Do they really know why people in the west celebrate april 1? or what happened on april 1?
janle hoyto ondher moto april 1 udjapon korto na!

I haven't said April fool to anyone since I knew it was a trick over muslims..So no comments over that!

Never wished anyone Merry Christmas while in Bd simply I didn't have any Christian Friends..I mean whats the fuss here? Why would a muslim wish a muslim Merry Chirtmas? Thats simply Foolish...Truly I respect each individual religion, but I would not wish someone Happy holidays If I know he/she is not celebrating it...I would off course wish them who celebartes the holidays like Christians and Jews and others, but not a muslim...I am sure any Chirtians who would go to BD and by seeing the Spirit of Eid And and to show respect would wish us Happy Eid...Just like that, while living here, seeing their Chritmas Spirit, you want to show them too that you respect!
Did I make Any sense?

There is a BIG misconception about April Fool's day not unlike the fallacy of Neil Armstrong becoming a muslim (he is not). From what I recall it has been widely rumored (mostly in muslim countries) that April Fool's day has started from a trick played on Muslims during the Spanish war. While the trick itself maybe true it DEFINITELY was not the origin of April Fool's day. Following is a reference to the origin.

The prank started due to disagreement by traditionalists to accept the New Year as January 1 (instead of around March 20th) according to the Gregorian Calendar as decreed by the Pope. Following two sites has more details:
1. http://www.infoplease.com/spot/aprilfools1.html
2. http://wilstar.com/holidays/aprilfool.htm

If anyone has any historically accurate document or soft copy showing this was not the origin of April Fool's day I will be glad to learn abt that.

thanks,
ClusterOne

Sorry to stray away from the subject of Sb's post. Here in the U.S. many of my Christian and Hindu friends do wish me a 'Happy Eid'. I have not heard a muslim wishing a fellow muslim 'Happy Christmas' although if personally someone wants to celebrate the birth of Jesus (who is also a prophet in Islam) I have nothing against him/her. In reality however Christmas is more like a holiday celebration and lost most of its religious significance. In fact in some places these days it is considered "Politically Correct" to say "Season's Greetings" than "Happy Christmas". To be really PC, one shud also say "Happy Hanukah" to a jewish person but I've hardly seen ppl do that!
