Just an odd little thing I noticed looking at the sheet for DS's school Christmas program (yes, public schools still have Christmas programs and still sing Christmas music - contrary to some very loud opinions, nobody's been oppressed).
One of the songs has a line about "welcoming the Yuletide". When these songs are taught in churches, is it ever explained that Yule is a Heathen holiday and has nothing to do with Christmas? Do they still lie to people and tell them it's just another word for Christmas?

In Danish, Swedish, and Norwegian the word for Christmas is Jul, it is Jol i Icelandic (all pronounced Yule). I found that interesting.
