I have a question for Christians...

1) What do you think about Pagan's and their holidays?
2) Would you ever practice a Pagan ritual? Why or why not?
3) Do you realize that your winter holiday Christmas is based on Pagan holidays and traditions?

  • I am Christian and understand that we Christians hijacked the pagans high holidays when we chose to have Christmas in December (Yule Celebration).....the tree is a hijacking of their Yule Log.

    When we use a real tree - we do save the bottom of the tree as our "Yule Log" and that's a Pagan ritual.

    And they have a great celebration this year - Yule and the Full Moon are the same night....how wonderful!

  • St. Patrick's Day isn't Pagan. It's celebrating when a Roman guy rid Ireland of "snakes" a.k.a. Protestants.

  • ANON: What the hell does that have to do with what she said or asked?

    She just said to answer it and you are ANON. So that's what she called you. Geeze.

  • Lol, asking you if you were scared wasn't "looking for a fight". I was wondering if you are scared to voice your true feelings because you might see that your precious holiday is based on Pagan traditions.

    And jeez twins! Lol, no need for part 2 now! :)

    You said what I had to say! Thanks!
