Woke university cancels ‘Christian tradition’ to prioritise end of Eid

An Oxford college has cancelled its annual St. George’s Day dinner.

To commemorate the day of the English saint, Magdalen College usually hosts an annual banquet, with students and academics dining together to enjoy a traditional feast.

This year, however, there will be no such dinner; instead, the college will use the occasion to commemorate the end of Ramadan.

Despite the fact that the annual festival takes place two days earlier, the Oxford college will host a formal dinner for Eid on 23 April.

A St. George’s Day feast was held four years before the pandemic.

Magdalen College, on the other hand, denies having a tradition of designated St. George’s Day dinners.

The newspaper, on the other hand, cited evidence of such events, including a formal invitation in 2018 from the then-college vice-president for lecturers to “celebrate St George’s Day” with “a formal hall and high table at 7.30pm with a special English menu.”

It went on to say that the evening would include “Grace and English Music by the Clerks, followed by an oration.”

Instead this year, an invitation has been sent out for guests to “celebrate Eid with a festive dinner in the Hall”.

It added that “the meal will follow Muslim customs: the meat dish will be halal and no alcohol will be served”.
