Dance superstar Moby
has urged fans to remember the real meaning of Christmas and not get wrapped up in the commercialization of the festive period. In a seasonal message on his website, the hitmaker calls for peace and compassion among people of all religions.
He writes, "I always hope that somehow we can see past the fun and awesome pagan trappings of Christmas (trees, mistletoe, December 25th, candy canes, etc.) to remember that on Christmas we celebrate the birthday (even if Jesus wasn't actually born anywhere near December 25th) of a man who wanted us all to be more forgiving, more compassionate, less judgmental, less violent, and less materialistic.
"Ultimately Christmas is about celebrating the birthday of a man who wanted us to love one another and to look after one another - regardless of our religious or political or ethnic or gender differences."
