Christ Mass is an invented roman catholic celebration stemming from the winter solstice which does not represent Christ. Christ was born before cold weather. Radio Shack knows that. Yay Lamb!

I think you are missing the point. The Roman Catholic Church planned its holidays to overshadow the solstices because religions at that time celebrated the beginning and end of seasons. The church wished to overshadow their celebrations.
This doesn't take away from the current tradition and representation of Christ's birth. Is the day Christ was born and historical accuracy more important than the celebration of His birth and life? Would Radio Shack recognize Christmas if it were in July? I think not.
If you are a business or an individual and don't want to recognize Christmas, that's your choice. To say, though, that Christmas isn't representative of Christ, because its on the winter solstice and the weather is not right is quite a leap.

Actually Christ doesn't want His name or birth celebrated. He worshipped His Father.
Christmas is NOT birth time of Jesus, nor mass of Christ.
Christmas is NOT nicest time of year, but the worst: stats.
There were NOT 3 magi, but 3 gifts of many Babylon Jews.
Wise men did NOT visit a babe in a manger at Bethlehem.
Shepherds do NOT abide flocks in fields by night in winter.
Xmas Tree NOT Godly, but vain Babylon custom: Jeremiah 10.
King of the Jews (Law) is NOT The King of Kings (Grace).
Christmas is neither good nor Godly, but vain religion
Christmas is a churchy holiday (holy day) similar to Easter Bunny stuff and an orgy of consumerism which begins on Black Friday which many Childish-adults traditionally still cling to, as if it were Godly to be lying, crying, dying children of God. Not. Xmas is not only a cash cow for retailers, but also for churches(plural), and their ministers of Satan (2Corinthians 11:15) are more the "child" of hell than Pharisees who sat in Moses' Seat in Matthew 23. Such are the words of Jesus from Matthew 23, which also has eight woes (stop its) to such Pharisees, scribes, hypocrites, vipers, fools, and blind guides. Paul also exhorts us to put away such "childish" things (1Corinthians 13) and to "be no more children" (Ephesians 4).
Fallacy: The Bible teaches that believers in Jesus should celebrate Christmas. The word “Christmas” is not in the Bible. The idea of God’s children designating a special day to celebrate the birth of His Son is not in the Bible. It is a man-made idea, making worship and service to God in vain (Mark 7:7). The New Testament does not authorize a religious feast called “Christmas,” so those who respect the authority of the Bible will refrain from engaging in such (Matthew 28:20; Colossians 3:17).
We must discern between fact and fallacy. Let us be content to stick with what the word of God says.

So are you saying historical accuracy and nice weather are more important than the celebration of His birth, life, and teachings?
I believe you are, but I'd like you to clarify.
I appreciate the copy and paste, however, I would rather you have formulated your own response.
It is easy during Christmas to get wrapped up in consumerism, but I think it is also important to remember we don't, for the most part, buy ourselves things on Christmas we buy others gifts on Christmas.
-Christmas is NOT birth time of Jesus, nor mass of Christ.*Could be the mass of Christ in reference to the re-enactment of the "Lords Supper" Not the birth but the celebration of the birth.
-Christmas is NOT nicest time of year, but the worst: stats.<--foolishness Who determines what is nice? I think winter is nicer than summer, green is nicer than blue, and blah blah blah foolishness.
-There were NOT 3 magi, but 3 gifts of many Babylon Jews. I don't know where you get this from, there were 3 magi(wise men) who came bearing 3 gifts. Mat2:1-12
-Wise men did NOT visit a babe in a manger at Bethlehem.They did visit a babe just not likely in a manger but more likely in a cellar. Possibly mistranslated.
-Shepherds do NOT abide flocks in fields by night in winter. It has been established Christ was not born in winter.
-Xmas Tree NOT Godly, but vain Babylon custom: I've never worshiped a Christmas tree.
-King of the Jews (Law) is NOT The King of Kings (Grace). They are both used to identify Jesus. Though Nebuchadnezzar and Artaxerxes also refer to themselves as king of kings.
Further: The entire 2nd paragraph and the argument by Roger Campbell are misleading, with the only basis being opinion which cannot be metered. Who weighs childishness? Including the citations from the bible this entire opinion has be excerpted and skewed with little reference or respect for context. It is unapproachable and honestly I believe its just ramblings.
If you want to celebrate Santa, put up a tree, a manger, lights, deer, etc. Why not? They have little to do with the birth of Jesus, but they have a lot to do with his teachings.
There are few greater things you could do than make a child smile. To bring your family together and treat each other decently, feed each other, and give each other gifts. Help a stranger, send gifts to troops, orphans, and buy widows groceries. To help the less fortunate. To leave a little bitterness behind and just enjoy the time to relax and be thankful.
Just sayin, but you might want to watch the movie "A Christmas Carol".
