  • Oh man, not this again, haha.

    Try searching the "answers" section....

    I'm by no means trying to be rude. Just not sure if you've searched the question yet...it's been asked a lot lately! It seems to be a battle over who stole what from where....

  • Christmas originated a couple of thousand years ago when Jesus was born. God sent His ONLY son to die to save all of us so that we could live with Him. This was a miraculous birth from a virgin and a day that is acknowledged as the birth of Christ. He loves us so much. Merry Christmas!

  • you want to know where Christmas comes from? It came from Retailers trying to make a Huge profit at the end of the year! That is it, The End.
    All the ppl want to scream it is about christ and the pagans blah blah blah. No it is not! It is about Macy's wanting to profit, It is about Walmart suckering you in Yet again to to charge your credit cards all the way up, so You MIGHT have it paid off by this time next year!
    It is a bunch of BS, and I refuse to buy into it! I buy small gifts, max of $10 a person and you get what you get! Most of the time I will make stuff like cookies and cakes. I just hate this whole giagantic Spending Spree it has become. ENUFF
