Actually the Holidays are celebrated with different Deities, both male and female in mind...The Solstices are generally celebrated with regards to the Masculine and the Equinoxes lean Feminine. The Cross Quarter Celebrations have different aspects as well.

I am hunting for a website that has tons of contrasts and comparisons of Paganism and Christanity. It talks about all the holidays stolen by Christians and has the story of Jesus and a Pagan God??? Shoot, I wish I could find it. It opened my eyes completely about how Christianity is stolen from other religions, even the story of Jesus... I think it would be good for Jumper and the others to read. If anyone knows what I am talking about and knows the link, please post it for me. <3

If y'all remember, I am a Christian Spiritualist but not a traditional Christian. Traditional Christians call me Pagan so I feel more comfortable with Pagans and those who are Metaphysical.

I seriously doubt that jumper would care to do any serious research. He is more interested in just being a pain in the rear.

We don't center our teachings around Christianity or really even speak of it much....good luck, a lot of it is commons sense if you have read the bible, and then studied paganism....drudism...or witchcraft.

It is quit clear, even when MIchelagelo painted about the irony of it....(commissioned by the Vatican)...???

I have read almost every word on that site and the first time, I actually cried, sobbing type crying. The TRUTH became so clear to me. I felt as if I had been lied to my entire life. I was devastated.
