I gotta admit, I laughed at this.The last I looked Somalia is in Africa. Why should black Somalians care about a white European holiday? Has Santa sent an emissary to Mogadishu to work things out?
Where is Bernard when Santa needs him?
But isn't the basic question one of intolerance? Why should the Somalian government really care what one believes or worships? I would argue that Christmas really isn't an "ethnic" holiday--a la white European. It is a Christian religious holiday, but not ethnic. Different ethnic groups celebrate it differently. And it definitely has some roots in Saturnalia/winter solstice celebrations, but not all.
In order to be fair, I would hope the Somalian government would ban the celebration of Passover and Yom Kippur for the Ybir who claim they are of Hebrew descent... after all intolerance must be non-discriminatory by nature...
