The Islamic Eid ul-Fitr celebrations mark the end of the Muslim fasting for the month of Ramadan. The socialist mayor of Copenhagen has decided to sponsor this religious event and re-brand it as a party for everybody. We are all invited:
"Come to Eid party in Copenhagen on September 1st," Københavns Kommune, August 25:
Copenhagen Municipality and the WorldCultureCentre transform Eid from a Muslim event into a huge Copenhagen-party for the third time.
The mayor's office informs us that:
Eid-ud-fitr, normally just called Eid, marks the ending of the Ramadan. Eid is a yearly event for a great many people living in Copenhagen, and is celebrated by almost all Muslims, practising or not. It is not so different from the Christian Christmas. Food is in focus, but first of all we are all meeting to party and support human values.
After all, Eid and Christmas are the same, right? Because Jesus and Muhammed are just sooo much alike...
