THE Institute for Public Policy Research’s pamphlet on improving race relations is required reading at Anorak Towers.

It informs us: “If we are going to continue as a nation to mark Christmas…then our public organisations should mark other major religious festivals too.”

“’Mark all religious festivals,” says the Independent’s headline. And we will.

But what with so many occasions to mark – November 5 – 12 is Road Safety Week 2007; Nov 21 – World Television Day; Nov 19 – 23 Anti-Bullying Week; Nov 21 World Hello Day – we may need to combine two or more happenings to please one and all.

Diwali and Guy Fawke’s night could be marked by tossing the Green Cross Code man atop a huge funeral pyre.

And if the birth of Guru Nanak can be woven into the thread of National Tree Week (Nov 21 – Dec 2?), we can all rest easy…
