The Austrian ambassador to Germany, Dr. Nikolaus Marschik, issued invitations to a reception at the embassy, where Aiman Mazyek, chairman of the Central Council of Muslims, was to present his new book entitled “What do Muslims make of Christmas?”
Via(h/t DMF)The evangelical pastor Margot Käßmann would give an introductory speech. Then there would be a “cozy gathering with winter delicacies”. I was interested why, on the 4th day of Advent, there would be “winter delicacies” instead of “Christmas delicacies”.
A lady from the embassy told me that the name “winter delicacies” was chosen out of consideration for Islam. That was only fair towards Muslims, she said.(Well, I guess we now know what Muslims make of Christmas)
