holidays = jesus, the more you know.
Actually, holiday is a bastarized version of the words Holy and Day. It has nothing to do with Jesus. If holiday = jesus then many holidays are nothing more then celebratory days based on whatever a person is celebrating. You know what? They have a name for that.... holiday...
Adding to it, Lemmi, Christmas predates Jesus, it was pagan holidays that the catholic church took as there own and named after jesus. Though he more likely was born in the springtime due to baby animals being around and positioning of the stars according to the story. Easter would be a better birthday for him then christmas to be honest. Hell we still celebrate pagan rituals, gingerbread cookies? during the winter solstice a few smaller religions actually baked bread in the shape of people. Yule log burning is also another tradition. The christmas tree being decorated? nope not christian nor a part of judism which christianity sprang from.
Personally I don't care whether you celebrate christmas for religious reasons, or just to get pretty presents like I do, just do us all a favor and don't park in my fuc*ing spot at the mall, k? k. Edited, Dec 28th 2009 3:25am by Tyrrant
