    How about leaving us up north out of your “saturnalia” … But besides that yes.

    Hmmm. Seems to me that th biggest “threat to Christmas” is from fundamental Christians.

    I’ve heard this before from them.

    I want a head-on-a-pike, too! Nobody ever gives me a head-on-a-pike. Both ears and the tail, sometimes, but never a head-on-a-pike. [sniff]

    Well, not “everyone” knows. If they did, they’d spend less time whining about a “war on Christmas” and more time working on “peace on earth” and “good will toward men,” two very low priorities on the fundamentalist scale of ethics.

    Actually, the “early Christians co-opted Saturnaila” trope may not be true. Too long to discuss in detail here, but early Christians theology contended that Christ died on the same day of the year he was conceived. One calculation was that the Crucifixtion occurred on March 25 on our modern calendar and thus his birth was 9 months later- December 25th. (Another calculation had the Crucifixtion on April 6- nine months before January 6th- the Epiphany.) Check out http://www.ancient-future.net/christmasdate.html for a more detailed analysis.

    Thank you dear Bell for trying to ruin another Christian thing with your half truths and lies. It is never proven or disproven when Jesus was born. The Church did use this period to help win over pagan converts, but not to allow them to party on, but to help them not get pissed off for having their false worships desimated. As God told Peter, “call nothing I made unclean.” This refers to all creation. God made the days, the lunar and solar cycles, and all that the pagans worshipped as good. The Church was trying to honor that. Good day to you.
