I've got Muslim friends who put up a Christmas tree and leave a present from Santa. I've got some Muslim friends who don't always eat halal meat, or will eat from a bbq that has had bacon cooked on it. I've got some Muslim friends who wear a hijab and some who don't. I've got Christian friends who give up something for Lent, others who eat meat on Good Friday.
People follow their religion differently. There's no right or wrong.
But sometimes I just tell my kids no. And that's OK as well.
Sometimes I lie and tell them I'm not feeling well when I cbf playing with them anymore. Or I tell them I'm tired if I want to just lie down for 5 minutes and not be bothered. Better than me telling them that I've had enough of their company and just want to be alone.
