Did the Christians create any of their own holidays or are they all stolen from the Pagans?

  • Nope. They took over every Pagan holiday to try to make it easy to convert everyone.

  • It is a bit harsh to say stolen, but even worse to say they where evil before hand.

  • Not turned from evil to good.

    Appropriated in order to make conversions more palatable to those they were convincing to follow them.

  • I agree many Christian holidays have "non christian" backgrounds... but they aren't celebrated in a pagan fashion,. they are celebrated to honor Christ.
