If you really want to get technical about it, Christmas was only a holiday taken on by the Christians because it was Pagan in origin and the church just couldn't have that.

Christians are also trying to take Halloween from us, which is just stupid. Really, if there's a war going on, it's against holidays the church doesn't like.

Happy Yule, everyone.
your knowledge of pagan history, world history, ancient religions, philosophical issues and politics always laid out in great words!

Christmas has been celebrated for centuries . Our country was founded on Christian principals found in the Bible.
What country is that? You can't mean the United States of America because, if so, you have your history confused. Obviously, you have never learned or read the doctrines or beliefs of our founders, those contemporaries of the Age of Reason, who used those priciples to base the foundation of this country. No, Christmas was not celebrated during the formative years when we were colonies and then a nation. It is more of a 19th century creation - brought to these shores from Europeans who gleaned a variety of traditions from their pagan celebrations of the past.

This "Father Christmas" guy sounds like a real loser he's making it up as he goes along
