Meanwhile, Down Under ...

Australia's Multicultural Affairs Minister Gary Hardgrave has gone on record as saying that schools and kindergartens should set up nativity scenes, throw Christmas parties and actually talk about the story behind the holiday, reports the Weekend Australian.

And he said if schools want to do the same for Hanukkah or the Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr they should be able to do that, too.

Hardgrave said people should not have to concede traditions that have been important to them and their family generations just to appease a handful of people who might get offended.

"Our culture, our tradition are something that has attracted people from all around the world to come and live here and be part of," he said.

"We have an opportunity to learn from the cultures they brought to Australia,” he said. "But we were here first, our framework was in place because of all of the efforts of previous generations. Our framework is what made it possible for all those people to come, and we should never be afraid of it."
