I don't mean to be Scrooge or the Grinch, but I'm afraid Christmas + Christianity don't mix.... Here's why-- -It's nowhere in the bible-the *story* is(Although quite different from the one we're accustomed to-see "Twisting of the Nativity to below), but there's no statement that it has to be worshipped as a Holiday. -Pagan influence. Everything from the date(The birthdate of several Pagan dieties) to Christmas trees. -Santa Claus. Come on, the guy has almost nothing to do with Jesus? He was apparentally a Catholic saint to start with, then got warped into a magical, immortal fat guy. Also other Christmas characters like Frosty and Rudolph... -Materialism and Commercialism. While giving *is* a Christian virtue, Christmas is often to used as a scam to sell as much crap to as many people as possible. And people are mainly obsesssed with *receiving*, not *giving*. -Twisting of the nativity story. Three Kings of the Orient? What? Actually Zoroastarian Magi in the court of Herod the Great. Little Drummer boy? Where?
