I am not a religious man, but I do not condemn religion. I accept it, even when I was a Christin youth. But I still celebrate x-mas because I believe it is a progressive social practice that is important. This belief includes any and all other holidays that bring people together.

correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the tree a symbol for an old German religion?

Christmas trees have their origin in Germany and other Norse countries, where they actually sacrificed people by hanging them by the branches. They also made a wooden phallus-shaped figure which they dripped goat-blood on.

I am not even joking.

...A Christmas tree isn't a religious symbol... It is a tradition traced back to Victorian England....

So if we should be tolerant to others beliefs shouldn't we allow them to use 'symbols' if they wish? We're not allowed to tell Islamics not to wear burqa's because we have to 'respect their beliefs' and yet they are allowed to tell us to take down Christmas trees?
Yes I know its a pagen holiday but its still hypocrisy at its finest.

1. Not only Christians celebrate Christmas
2. Christmas isn't even a Christian holiday
User avatar #161 to #158 - bananarchy (12/10/2012) [-]
No it's not, it was celebrated by pagans years before the supposed birth of Christ and was merely adopted by Christians

Beliver or not, Xmas is Xmas... It's not about the faith, but about the message of peace and joy...Like the "pagan's" celebrations that exisisted before Xmas...

Someone please enlighten me as to why people keep saying that Christmas was a Pagan holiday. The tradition of receiving presents from Saint Nicholas once a year and celebrating Christ's birth originally belonged to ancient roman polytheists??? Wat?

Tree is a religious icon? I guess Santa Claus is also religious icon since some kids believe in it.

ALL HAIL SANTA!

**mrloki rolled a random image posted in comment #319 at I would like a president like this ** man, isn't christimas a pagan festival ? I mean, yeah somehow ppl came up with the idea that jesus was born on 25 of december (wich is stupid) but... it was a festival with gifts and stuff before the religious thingy got attached.

I'm not a christian, but I celebrate christimas !
User avatar #7 to #6 - pebar (12/10/2012) [-]
Christmas was moved to December to coincide with the Roman festival of Saturnalia so the early Christians wouldn't be persecuted for celebrating. But you are right; Jesus wasn't really born in December.
