  • You are going to get lots of hate with this one...

    As a Pagan woman, who was raised JW, yes. I not only know where the majority of todays "Religious Holidays' started but I do my best to keep those original meanings and beliefs alive... Or at least a good many of them.

  • I don't think she meant evolution in the sense you are thinking... she means the evolution of the holidays as in the changing of the holidays from the original.

  • All of the modern holidays we celebrate today in just about every current religion began as Pagan celebrations, I actually discussed this with a friend who has her PHD in theology and she agreed. You can look into on line as I have it's pretty interesting how they started and have changed over the millenia.
