Scottish Town to Celebrate Christmas without Christ

Ad Feedback

A town in Scotland wants to remove all references to Christianity during their Christmas holiday festivities.

Dundee City leaders say they don't want a traditional nativity story, but just want a "Winter Light Night" celebration instead.

However, Rev. Allan Webster, who was invited to speak at last year's Christmas Lights celebration, said the decision erodes the religious significance of Christmas.

"It is important for all faiths to be able to celebrate their festivals and I must stress I would also be concerned if people of any other religion had their festival diluted," Webster said.

The Scotsman reported Dundee's Church Of Scotland Presbytery is planning to raise concerns with the city council.

A Dundee City Council spokesperson said, "When we are contacted by Dundee Presbytery we will look at the points they are raising and respond to them."
