Diwali (deepawali/diwalee) reminded me of x’mas card incidences of last year.
One was receiving 2 Christmas cards from 2 ‘Sikh’ couples last year!! LOL!! I can understand if they were from non-sikhs but from Sikhs!!!!. Have they gone BONKERS!!
I was informed that a very long time ago in my local Gurdwara, many of these then ignoramous ‘Sikhs’ use to sent each other x’mas cards!!!!
Many of these then ignoramous Sikhs know better nowadays with the exception of one individual who I sincerely hope will not make the same mistake again. It seems that he sent x’mas cards to many Sikhs and not only me. This reminds me TO REMIND HIM not to make the same mistake again and that he should if he want to spent his money to spent it sending Gurpurab cards.
Please note that I received no GurPurabh cards from the ignoramous couple I mentioned above. ( I did received e-cards and cards from other Sikhs though.)
I know for a fact that these “Sikhs” attend Gurdwara (probably with blinkers and ear plugs).
I basically informed them that Sikhs celebrated with sangat keertan shabad and/or akhand padh in Gurdwara Guru purabh’s and that they should post Sikhee related cards such as Basaikhi cards with gurbani message if they want to spent their money and time sending cards.
There will still be some so called ‘sikhs” who will continue celebrating hindu diwali at home totally oblivious of Gurbani teachings and will probably also continue celebrating x’mas at home with x’mas trees, turkey, alcohol and parties – totally oblivious of the “paganism” history attached to this event and of course oblivious of Gurmat too!
