First how is this priest linked to a pagan holiday, please share. The fact that merchants use many holidays as excuses to try and turn a profit have little to do with the true roots and as to why..
you still twist people words... Western civilisation applied for pagan holidays... Christmas and Valentine are promotional days to corporations... there is no tradition in them...ahole... If you go to some of Europeans villages... you will see the real traditions and customs that the locals carry on for centuries .... these celebrations represent truly the western civilisation... the commercial ones are just that commercial...nothing in Europe have Biblical roots...most of the celebrations were pagans ...ahole.
