Happy Birthday, Jesus!

There were joyous celebrations amongst Christmas-lovers today as the realisation began to sink in that Christmas Day 2011 will fall on a Sunday.

The anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, which has so often come to pass on a drab Monday or even a Thursday, will eventually come to pass on the Sabbath, ironically the Lord's Day, next year, and the news has had mixed reactions.

Christians say it's great news. They claim that Christmas belongs on a Sunday - their normal day of worship - and couldn't hide their obvious pleasure as the news filtered out.

Other people, though, complained that Sundays are always a day off from work, and that they wouldn't be compensated by their bosses for the loss.

Albert Brickbat, 58, from Cheadle, told me:

"I hate Christmas, especially when it deprives me of another day off from work, which I also hate."

But Rebecca Rachel Mary Magdalen Smith-Parable, a devout something, said:

"It's nice that the birth of Jesus Christ will fall on a Sunday, where it belongs, isn't it?. I think. Oh, I don't know. I'm a bit simple, you see."

* In a strange twist of fate, New Year's Day will also fall on a Sunday next year.
