    I'm not saying they're wrong, just wondering if the Jedi/Atheist/... among them realise what they are doing!
    But the point is, Christianity in it's many forms, adopted existing traditions & moved Christ's birthday to an existing Pagan festival. That's just the thin end. Why therefore can't non-Christians and existing Pagan continue or adopt 'So-called Christian Celebrations' to suit. What I'm suggesting a a nice diverse non secular, happy world, where no one owns a day (except Martin Luther King Jr :-) )

    Woah there old friend - do Christians realise or care that most of their celebrations, INCLUDING CHRISTMAS, predate their religion and it is quite probable that people exchanged tokens around the winter solstice or whilst worshiping Mithras - who was
    a god of light who struggled against the powers of darkness and could raise people from the dead. He has been borrowed from Zorastrians - do you think christians know that???

    Careful, I hear mutterings of 'burn the witch' and the ducking stool being greased up.

    Ohh - really scared - NOT!
    I think that any opportunity for a bit of fun should be taken if possible - Life's miserable enough. I shall be celebrating Diwali, Hannukah and any other festival that crosses my path....

    Too right. The grandchildren let off those Chinese lanterns on what would have been my Mum's birthday last year. Neither they nor her are/were Chinese. Let's make the world smaller not more divided.

    We had pancakes, Isabel had a nom on mine, then ran round the kitchen going "pfft", and wiping her tongue..she's not smitten. Heh.

    Then we put the rest of the batter to good use and make a HUGE toad in the hole for tea. Yum!

    Had 6 mates round for P-Day yesterday, and some of the pancakes we created were simply awesome!
    We had pancakes with;

    Cheddar cheese and smoked ham
    Brie and Cranberry Jam
    Marshmallow, Strawberry sauce and white choc chips
    A Guinness pancake (literally made with batter mix and a can of Guinness!)
    Haagan Das cookies&ice cream + choc sauce
    White chocolate spread with dark chocolate chips
    Duck, plum sauce and spring onions
    I cracked open and spread 1 Cadbury's Creme Egg over one which then melted a little bit

    Though the last one was the most extreme, we made it like a pizza (so open-faced not rolled up) in a wok so it was huge (we all had a piece!) using white choc spread as a base, with choc sauce over that, marshmallows, dark choc chips, white choc chips, hundreds&thousands, orange&lemon jelly pieces, dolly mixture, a few jelly babies, some melted Galaxy choc, and another Creme Egg cracked over the top of it.

    So, so, SO sickly, and felt dreadful afterwards, but IT. WAS. AWESOME.
    Sadly I forgot to get a picture before we tucked in

    Sounds pretty immense! We also used some in a waffle maker (a textered george foreman grill) we brought from lidl for under 10 they were lovely!

    Came with a little book of ideas which I plan to try this weekend, ginger waffles (add a little stem ginger into the mix)
