lol...smh. reminds me of these folks renting out their house and the listing said "christian, God fearing family, only."  i kept thinking, "how are they going to know?"  same with these folks and the tree, how are they going to know whether or not the person purchasing the tree is christian?  are they asking customers for their church home and phone number so they could verify membership?  eh, well...more power to 'em...i think it's stupid as hell, but whatever.

You could always report us to the Secret Christmas Police.

Wait until we get ahold of the Easter Bunny.  We're taking him for ourselves also. 

Quoting little.worthen:

Haha what the heck. That's pretty funny.

But also it ticks me off that a lot of people who bash God and Jesus or say he isn't real celebrate Christmas. (The Christian version) granted it was a pagan holiday, but if you're going to bash Jesus, celebrate Christmas the traditional pagan way..

I would too and I might even go it and buy a Pentacle to wear just for that reason. I'd also have tattoos visible. :-)

The "Christmas tree" originated in 16th century Germany and was brought to the US in the 17th century by immigrants then acceptance spread throughout the western world around the middle of the 1800s. It was used by those in Germany to celebrate the feast of Adam and Eve. The candle decorations used by Prince Albert were the original way used by pagans for decorating the evergreens for Baccus. The decorations used on the 16th century trees were candies and the like. 

Quoting wenchmommy381:

I'm not arguing the tradition. I'm arguing the reason for current popularity. I read my bible just fine, thanks.

Quoting AMBG825:

And the tradition goes back much further than him. As far back as Babylon. Read your bible.

Quoting wenchmommy381:

Our tradition of decorating trees is more from Prince Albert in the 1800s than ancient Pagans. http://resources.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/customs/xmas/trees.html 

Quoting thecoffeefairy:

That's just silly. Decorating a tree is pagan. They brought it inside to keep from bring persecuted by Christians.
