    We celebrate Yule, which pre-dates the whole jesus thing by some thousand years. The church has some nice traditions around the same days but the whole sacrificed his only son is just weird.

    Although if you’ve ever read the Bible and know even a tiny bit about the Middle East, you’d know the birth probably took place in March. The Church moved the holiday (around 400 CE) to mid-winter to absorb all of the pagan holidays then.

    “Christmas” is a stolen Pagan holiday, renamed by the Catholic Church. It is originally a Pagan Celebration of the Solstice. Catholics didn’t like Pagans having a day so the church stole it right out from under them. It has NOTHING to do with any birth of anyone, plus nearly EVERY birth in ancient times was in SPRING, not WINTER.
