The offering of gifts of sweets are not expressions of reverence to the festive itself. It is permissible for muslims to accept Diwali or Christmas gifts of sweets on condition there is no Deeni harm in accepting such gifts and the gifts are not haraam.[Imdadul Fatawa 3/481 Maktaba Darul-Uloom Karachi], [Fatawa Mahmoodiya 18/174 Idara Al-Farooq Karachi], is it true???
Ref. No. 1010/41-183
In the name of Allah the most gracious the most Merciful
The answer to your question is as follows:
It is permissible for Muslims to give and accept gifts at the occasion of Non-Muslims’ festivals, on condition that the gifts were not presented to the idols as offerings.
