Well, as a practicing Wiccan. It has to be stated YET AGAIN, that the Pagan equivalent to Christmas is Yule, which pre-dates Christianity anyway. From this article it appears that there are a few moans about the commercial and rather greedy aspect to Christmas. This is not Pagan by the way. As a Pagan I celebrate Yule and I also dislike the commercial side to this season. I also enjoy watching Christian practitioners, singing carols, putting on nativity plays etc.. I personally love this time of year. Please just remember that things like Santa Claus, the amount of crippling debts and selfishness seen at this time of year are not Pagan, for at this time of year, I to look for the deeper spiritual meaning BB XX

That article just floors me. Leave it to Christians to "blam Pagans" for THEIR holiday becoming superficial. Why don't they blame the retail stores, tv commercials and hallmark instead of us. I am a practicing Wiccan, I celebrate Yule with my children who also, due to their father who is an atheiest, celebrate Christmas. If they are so bent out of shape about Pagans and christmas, then why did they choose to celebrate Christs birthday (which is in the spring) five days after we celebrate the birth of Our God?? Amazing...

This Christmas I didn't revieve a single religious Christmas card (e.g. nativity scene) if it wasn't for the few Santa ones and the words Merry Christmas they could pass for Yule cards. It was basically snowflakes and holly lolness

Yule, are as the Christian faith calls it Christmas, is a Pagan holiday. Christ, the supposed reason for Christmas, wasn't born in the winter. It was a tactic of the church, back in the day, in order to completly subjugate a conquored people to remove from them their religion. So more and more of the Christian holidays that are celebrated today share a very similar time frame with Pagan holidays. So yes, Jihad, Christmas is very much a Pagan holiday.=)

Oh..and if your so anti-Pagan. Don't put up a Christmas tree at Christas, or decorate eggs at Easter, and heaven forbid you take them to see the Easter bunny. Don't let your children go trick or treating, don't carve a pumpkin and I could go on with my list of Pagan traditions that have been bastardized...I mean Christianized.

Honestly one of the things that has always amused me the most was seeing a bunch of darling little Christian girls dancing around a May pole. It's everything I can do to keep a straight face at that point.

Hallowean is not a religious holiday now

When does it matter when Christ was born, the point is to celebrate his life and coming.... Not to argue meaningless points of his his exact birt date.

I fallow a religion that has been recorded by many for thousands of years.. not some made up religion of deranged ancients!!(:

Paganism has been around for over 30,000 years and Christianity has been around for 2000 years. That's a big difference. Most Christian holidays are actually based on Pagan celebrations, including Christmas which was originally the celebration of the Yule and the winter solstice. Even the Christmas tree is a Pagan symbol.

And for plenty of people, Christmas is no longer a religious holiday either. So I don't see your point, that my religion is as ignored as yours is? Okay fine, it's a tie.

But, um, I follow a religion that predates yours. Not that I really think longevity determines truth, but it was the PAGAN Romans who ruled the world back during your biblical times. So if the pagan Romans were around before your Christ was born, then I guess I win that time-line argument. I, and the Hindus, and Buddhists. Plenty of folks predate you Christians. So while I still don't see what you hoped to prove by puffing yourself up and citing the 2000+ years of Christianity, I still think you picked a losing fight.
