I don't even understand your argument. You're pissed because other people celebrate at the same time Christian's ripped off the pagan holiday.

Well then what exactly do you call it? Pagan's had dibs, then here came the Christian's passing it off as their own.

We celebrate christmas for Jesus's birth which actually happened in late october. The tree thing is definitely christian. It represents many things that have to do with the birth of Jesus. I think Christmas is a way for retailers to rape our pocketbooks. Yes I celebrate it but not to an extreme.

I'm sorry to break it to you so harshly, but you are wrong on so many levels...

I don't quite understand how you celebrate birth with the death of a tree?

Christmas is the equivalent of throwing a birthday party for yourself 1-2 months before/after the fact, depending on when you actually believe "christ" was born.

Have you ever went to a Halloween party? Did you trick or treat as a child?

A lot of historical "experts" don't even believe he existed, yet you know exactly when he was born?

The tree thing is definitely christian.

Umm, no.. It is not... It's a pagan tradition...

The Bible even says that you shouldn't chop down a tree and adorn it with silver and gold..pretty much making it an idol... Read Jeremiah sometime....

It represents many things that have to do with the birth of Jesus.

Ummm.. what?

I think Christmas is a way for retailers to rape our pocketbooks.

ding ding ding ding...
