Iran’s New Year Celebration at our White House…..

I believe Christmas is nicely celebrated at the White House, as is Easter, even if it’s the secular Egg Hunt that’s the only thing really celebrated.   The Obamas have also celebrated Passover in this way…a nice dinner with Jewish staff members: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/obama-holds-passover-seder-at-the-white-house/

Then it’s The Iranian New Year, NOWRUZ, (not so much peculiarly Muslim from what THIS ARTICLE says, by the way.)  The White House celebrated today with special speeches, Iranian guests, recipes prepared from recipes of “some of our staffers’ old family recipes”,  a dance troop and some Iranian teenaged singer, and the invitation to help yourself look around and have a great time!   “It’s kind of COOL being at the White House, isn’t it?”  Mrs. Obama has such a dignified way with words.  Listen here:

HERE is the accompanying article to the video….

I’m thinking I’d have rather had a muslim religious holiday celebrated at the White House than an Iranian holiday………..After looking at the video and my links, what do you think?

They SURE put on the dog, didn’t they?  Wait, they don’t like dogs, do they.  Sorry.  Well, they sure lived high on the HOG at the White House…oh, wait……….that doesn’t work, either.

  1. But we are a nation founded on the belief in God, not Mohammed or any other deity so we owe no obligation to celebrate other beliefs, Z. As everyone knows God and the Ten Commandments are etched in stone all over our nations capital so we can’t and shouldn’t forget it. Our founding fathers were smart enough to expect just such a time as we presently are in and did this.

    Yea… michele was not very impressive. I’ve heard young folks learning how to speak in public at Toastmasters sessions who have done much better than michele out of the gate. And imagine, her 22+ person staff of assistants wrote that for her. People’s house. Riiiiiight..

    I don’t believe anything Christian or Jewish is celebrated well at the white house. ?

    Kid, NOTHING is celebrated with that fervor…dancers, authentic foods, Iranian boy singers, etc etc….
    Christmas and Easter are celebrated with trees and easter hunts…nothing religious.

    What kills me is that this isn’t even a Muslim holiday (bad enough, considering they’re not even half the amount of Jews we have in America and how can we have White House events for every little religion?) per se, it’s an IRANIAN NEW YEAR. Yes, others celebrate it around the world but I’m thinking it’s mostly Iranians living around the world….

    Mal; who knows how long the Ten Comm. will be ANYWHERE? They’re trying to kick yet another chaplain out for not being SENSITIVE to ALL RELIGIONS and not supporting homosexuality in the military, etc.
    And I believe they know EXACTLy what they’re doing.

    The Obamas are either stupid enough to not see we’re kicking CHristianity out as muslims are shoving themselves IN, or they’re propagating it.

  4. Kid says:

    The obama’s are anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, and anti-American. There is not question about it.

  5. Baysider says:

    This isn’t the first celebration at the WH. The Bushes did this too – not sure how they compare. How much does it court the Iranians? Apparently the hardliner Iranian revolutionaries tried to stamp it out. But like Christmas before Victoria in England (who shifted the focus from a drunken debauch to a more family-oriented German Christian celebration), it just wouldn’t go away. What bothers me is their attitude toward deeply rooted and cultural Christian things.

  6. Baysider says:

    The Obamas’ attitude, I mean. OF COURSE the Iranians are off the deep end on Christianity.

  7. But of course the Iranian mullahs are going to look with favor upon the Great Satan now that it’s leader is fawning upon them in such a manner.

    Baysider, my information is that Bush extended greetings for Nowruz but not a big celebration like this at the White House. He did acknowledge Ramadan at the White House, to the best of my memory. And you’ve mentioned drunken debauchery in preVictorian England before but it seems odd that children would be included in Christmas if that was the case…so I Googled and this sounds a little more complete:

    “By the High Middle Ages, the holiday had become so prominent that chroniclers routinely noted where various magnates celebrated Christmas. King Richard II of England hosted a Christmas feast in 1377 at which twenty-eight oxen and three hundred sheep were eaten.[55] The Yule boar was a common feature of medieval Christmas feasts. Caroling also became popular, and was originally a group of dancers who sang. The group was composed of a lead singer and a ring of dancers that provided the chorus. Various writers of the time condemned caroling as lewd, indicating that the unruly traditions of Saturnalia and Yule may have continued in this form.[55] “Misrule”—drunkenness, promiscuity, gambling—was also an important aspect of the festival. In England, gifts were exchanged on New Year’s Day, and there was special Christmas ale.[55]

    Christmas during the Middle Ages was a public festival that incorporated ivy, holly, and other evergreens.[90] Christmas gift-giving during the Middle Ages was usually between people with legal relationships, such as tenant and landlord.[90] The annual indulgence in eating, dancing, singing, sporting, and card playing escalated in England, and by the 17th century the Christmas season featured lavish dinners, elaborate masques, and pageants. In 1607, King James I insisted that a play be acted on Christmas night and that the court indulge in games.[91] It was during the Reformation in 16th–17th-century Europe that many Protestants changed the gift bringer to the Christ Child or Christkindl, and the date of giving gifts changed from December 6 to Christmas Eve.[92]

    Kid..it’s unbelievable to consider this hate is in a president.

  9. Obama is sucking up to Iran.

    I’m ready to go live under a rock!

  10. Ditto for what AOW said. This administration is really trying to curry favor with Iran. So far, they’ve proved they are MORE DELUSIONAL than Neville Chamberlain was about Hitler.
