Young children celebrating the New Year

My son’s school intends to celebrate the New Year. They want us to buy gifts to give to Santa who will them give them to the children in the nursery. Is this permissible?

Answer

These celebrations have become social occasions. There is no objection to participating in such celebrations provided a Muslim does not do anything that contradicts the Islamic creed.

And God Almighty knows best.
