What do you mean Tucker we have way to many holidays?
Lets look at who borrowing who's holiday here? With out attack one another.

Christian holiday celebrates theses: Christmas, Thanskgiving, President day, Memorial day, Easter, Halloween, Earth day, Ground hogs day,Cinco Demayo, Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, and many other holidays.

Wicca holiday: Yule, Samhain, Imbolc, Ostara, Mid summer, Lammas, Mabon, Beltane.

Where is more holidays at? I listed both holidays above in Christianity and Wiccan traditions.

Perhaps you want to go back further and quote biblical quotes from say Palm 101? There with in the quote and other places with in the bible is the hymn to the Aten/Aton from none other then Akhenaten Pharaoh of Egypt who started Monothemism back then B.C.E.

How about the fact that Osiris, Isis and Horus very similarity in story to Joseph, Mary ,and Jesus. I am quoting these things because I have studied Egyptian religion for a long time and Christianity derived from it and borrowed the holidays re named them took the femininity out of the Cross which was the Ankh and why do you use the eye of Horus in symbolism in eye doctors signs or our American dollar bills?

Perhaps before you speak openly about attacking our religion better might want to take a look back at yours. Wiccan's don't worship the devil how many times do we hear this beginning to become old news making us look back like we are doing something bad. What is wrong with seeing two the great devine God and Goddess equality balance.

There is nothing wrong with your religion, or the next religion why cant we all see this in humanity? We have a right to vote and a right to speak. I am not speaking for the whole of the Wiccan community only in my path that has followed me since I was a very young girl.

Again I see words put in our mouths where they are not to be used and we sit here let people like this speak for us perhaps we all should speak up even those who are solitary in practice we can't sit here while people like this go around bashing our religion.

emhotep,
Peace in Ancient Egyptian
