Liam Fox: Don’t apologise for Christmas


Religious tolerance lies at the heart of any civilised society. It is right to respect the traditions and cultures of others.

But, because we tolerate and respect views different to our own, does not mean that we have to apologise for our own beliefs, traditions or culture.

In the Christian tradition, Christmas is a time of hope and renewal, a central part of our religious belief.

It is, of course, a personal thing, but it is why, for example, I always choose a nativity scene for our Christmas cards – a reminder about what Christmas actually stands for.

So, for me, it’s not “Happy Holidays” but wishing everyone, of all religions and none, a very happy and peaceful Christmas.
