Are you afraid to talk about Christmas in your workplace?

Are you afraid to talk about Christmas in your workplace? That’s the question people seem to be asking themselves, after MP Fiona Bruce asked the following in Parliament:

I wonder if most people struggle to NOT talk about Christmas at this time of year.

There seems to be an undercurrent in this question, that is to suggest that Christians don’t feel free to discuss their beliefs in this country. I wonder if this really is the case? Or are we being told something, in the hope that if we hear it enough, we believe it?

Look. If someone at your office doesn’t want to talk about Christmas, its more likely they want to get on with work, rather then prosecute you for being a Christian.

What do you think? Is Fiona Bruce asking an important question? Are you afraid to talk about Christmas in your workplace? Do you think its all a matter of perception?
