    I don't know about the ACLU, but at least someone should've warned Jesus about the winter festival, or Saturnalia or what-have-you before he planned to celebrate his birthday right in the middle of it.

    The date of his birth celebration was not established until almost 400 years after the Resurrection. Be sure to take out a billboard, tv, and radio ads to ensure the same thing doesn't happen to you. But only if you think anyone will remember you in 2404.

    Actually no, the Catholic Church was the reason.

    Jesus had nothing to do with it. The gospels never once mention an annual celebration of his birth. Nor anything to do with decorated and lit trees, presents or feasting.

    NH, you're not really that good at "arguing" via hotlinked image (this thread is full of bad examples), but if you're going to respond to a comment about Vikings, it's probably a good idea to make sure you're not linking to a photo of a Sami (or Lapp as many of us over 30 learned about them).

    Sami/Lapp =/= Germanic, much less Viking.

    I can't fully enjoy Christmas unless every store chain has Christmas decorations, and their employees wish me a Merry Christmas as I check out with my hundreds of Euros in presents. The true meaning of the season is lost if they all don't honor my holy day over all others.

    Merry Christmas to all. May you all have room on your credit cards to honor the season.

    Might be a good thing ... victory over the beast.
    Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
    3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

    Oh man - is it really time for the Annual War on Christmas??? We aren't ready yet!! Many of our foot soldiers are still out getting ready to celebrate Halloween. I don't think the Florida division will be ready to report to duty until mid november.
