  • If it wasn't the 25th of Dec. then why do so many Christians believe it to be so? I'm not being confrontational.....just asking.

  • Nope I don't believe in God or Jesus and we do have Christmas (for lack of a better term) or Xmas in our house. Santa, baking cookies, decorating a tree, exchanging gifts are all that are mentioned. We celebrate a time for family, togetherness, etc.

  • Christmas in it's literal sense is just a commercial holiday about giving to the ones you love. This is not a Christian concept but a universal concept.

    It's about presents and giving. Nothing more. Heck, Jesus was born in late August or early September! not December. That was a pagan holiday. If you ask me, Christians shouldn't Celebrate Christmas then if it really is a celebration Jesus' birth, but no they choose to celebrate it on a Pagan holiday

  • I know he wasn't born Dec 25th, but that's the day that Christians chose to celebrate his birth. Why wouldn't I want to take a part in that? It doesn't matter to me that he wasn't born then...what matters is taking a day to remember his birth and being thankful for friends and family.

  • Anon 8:41 -- Biblical Scholars say Jesus was actually born some time in September. (According to the clues in the scripture) Christmas was created to incorporate pre-existing pagan winter celebrations (Yule for one) into the Christian faith. Decorating a tree, mistletoe, wreaths, the day of celebration.. they all pre-date Christianity. This helped transition people easier - if they could keep their familiar holidays. I don't actually know of any Christian holidays that aren't "stolen" from other faiths. They did that pretty often. (No offense meant)

  • Serafyna is correct. There is an interesting documentary on the History channel and I am sure they will play it often during the holiday season. I'm sure you would be interested to see why so many different faiths still celebrate on this day -- not just Christians.
