Answer: It is impermissible to cooperate or assist the Christians on their holidays even if those who are considered knowledgable do so. Due to that which is contained in that from increasing their numbers and aiding them upon sin and transgression. The Most High says:

“And cooperate upon righteousness and piety and do not cooperate upon sin and transgression.”[5:2]
