Christ was never in Christmas

just thought I'd enlighten some of the GT bible thumpers on here.

Look up Saturnalia first.

I'll let the other people on here elaborate further.

Does that mean he didn't get any presents?

Well, I think christ like died on the cross, so everyone could get wine and crackers for presents and all eternity, while a hot asian goddess rides her tiger with laser beams on his head into battles in hopes to gain entry to Valhalla.

OK, but, does that mean he doesn't get presents?

And if he gets presents, when does he get them - Christmas eve or Christmas morning?

Santa is just Satan with a few letters switched. If you don't believe me look it up.

Christmas is the day Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus.
No Christian has ever implied anything else.

It has it's roots in a Pagan holiday though. And last I heard, Christians hate Pagans because they don't believe in the god that Christians believe in. So why do they celebrate the birthday of Christ on a Pagan holiday?

Because way back then they didn't have a day to celebrate Christs birth day. They chose 12/25 because it was close to, or was, a pagan holiday; and the old Roman Christian leaders were trying to convert pagans. They felt it would be easier if Christs birth day coincided with their pagan holiday. Very old records indicate that Christ was actually born in the early spring. And so what difference does it really make?

What difference does it make? That poorly educated people vehemently proclaim that December 25th is christ's actual birthday, and that that is the only reason it is celebrated, and it is entirely christian with absolutely no pagan ties at all. Which means it's fun to laugh at them.

Nope, not really.

Very old records show that the belief was that Christ was incarnated in the spring, which could very well mean that his conception was at that time. March 25th (the feast of the Annunciation) was the best guess, given the ancient Jewish belief in the integral age of prophets and given that they thiought that He died on March 25th. IF Mary's pregnancy lasted exactly 9 months (the best guess, although by no means a certainty), that brings us to: December 25th!!

Why do they say he was born on Dec. 25?

Still don't want to talk about what happened that makes you the way you are?

You can't run from it forever, you know. And, if you think starting a thread like this doesn't scream problems to normal people, go show it to your relatives or co-workers and ask them.

Why try to discredit Christmas and Christians at their holiest of all holidays?
Do you think it's funny or a joke?

What is it to you?
Are Christians bothering you in some way?

You and others like you seem obsessed with something you claim you don't even believe in. Why is that?

Christianity has brought hope, peace and joy into the lives of countless millions, and for some reason you seem to have a problem with that?

Do you have a problem with other people being happy?

Is Christmas really the holiest Christian holiday? Doesn't Easter rank higher in terms of religious significance?

I'd say Christians think Christmas is holier than Easter because they get more loot on Christmas.
