Merry Christmas

A Piece of My Mind would like to wish all readers a very Merry Christmas. Some say Christmas has been very commercialized, some say this holy day is still very much intact.

Whatever it is, it is still an important day for Christians and A Piece of My Mind wishes everyone a memorable Christmas and a happy holiday.

I have some pictures of special Christmas trees that I took in Sydney. Enjoy.

A Christmas tree made from junk chairs and furniture at The Rocks, Sydney.

A beautiful Christmas tree at Darling Harbour.

Note : I realise Ipoh has 10 times more cars than in Canberra, the capital of Australia.

Merry Christmas to my Christian friends!

"To some Muslims, wishing the non-Muslims with Merry Christmas or any of their religious festivals is haram (forbidden).

"On Christmas day, Imam Khomeini gave a message to all the Christians of the world that the news agents broadcast. As well as this message, he told us to distribute gifts to the residents of Neauphel-le Chateau. These were usually Gaz (a type of confectionary), Aajeel (dried nuts or seeds or fruits) and Shireeni (sweet items) that some brothers had brought from Iran. We carried this out and next to each package, we placed a flower stem.

"In the places we went to, we sensed that many in the West were not familiar with this kindness and love, even between fathers and their children, They felt it very strange that the night of the birth of the Prophet of the Christians, a non-Christian Iranian leader was so close to them and felt love for them. For example there was a woman who, when she took the Imam's gift, was so overcome that tears rolled down her face".
