Christian holiday moved to conflict with the time of year when everyone everywhere (and everywhen) celebrates the winter solstice (point of Earth's orbit where, in the northern temperate zones, the sun's zenith slows its southern decent and begins moving north again = another year to live).

2. Hodgepodge of ancient and not-so-ancient rituals, including sacrificing a tree to Mother Nature, celebrating the miracle that got Nicholas his sainthood (reassembling murdered and hacked up child parts in a barrel back into children), and, oh, the birth of Jesus, a jew, and the guy that made 12 of his buddies drink his blood and eat his flesh, before he got executed and came back from the dead. (Can you say "zombie"?)

3. Day that Santa brings new socks and undies. If your bad, you get coal (to keep from freezing) and an orange (for vitamin C to prevent scurvy).
Fucking Christmas. I wanna get drunk.

The date of December 25th probably originated with the ancient "birthday" of the son-god, Mithra, a pagan deity whose religious influence became widespread in the Roman Empire during the first few centuries A.D. Mithra was related to the Semitic sun-god, Shamash, and his worship spread throughout Asia to Europe where he was called Deus Sol Invictus Mithras. Rome was well-known for absorbing the pagan religions and rituals of its widespread empire. As such, Rome converted this pagan legacy to a celebration of the god, Saturn, and the rebirth of the sun god during the winter solstice period. The winter holiday became known as Saturnalia and began the week prior to December 25th. The festival was characterized by gift-giving, feasting, singing and downright debauchery, as the priests of Saturn carried wreaths of evergreen boughs in procession throughout the Roman temples.
Jesus was not born on December 25th. He was 33 1/2 when he died on Nisan 14 which is in April. Do the math.

Christmas is an ancient Pagan celebration of the birth of the sun that was later taken over by Christians and turned into the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Nowadays this holidy has lost all meaning, and ties to religion as far as im concerned. It is currently used as a reason to consume more shit mass produced in Chinese sweatshops by children (and sold by a fat pedophile, see Santa), drink too much egg nog, and get fat by eating too much fucking ham.
Oh, its December, time to listen to the fat pedophile and sell out to the corporations by buying overpriced meaningless plastic "gifts" for all my family and friends....for Jesus.

Or as Jim Gaffigan once said in regards to Christmas.

"I'm gonna take this pine tree and stick it in the living room, then we're gonna put our socks above the fireplace...fill 'em with candy, them I'm gonna put some leaves on the cieling and see if I can get some action"

A cleverly ployed marketing scheme beginning late November and carrying on into January.
"Dude, Christmas is Jesus' birthday"
"Jesus who?"

An ancient Roman Pagan festival that was given a "Christian" name in the fouirth century. Even though no one knows the date of Jesus Christs birth, it is for certain that it could not have been on Dec. 25th. Yet, people lie and say that Jesus was born on this day- and then they participate in all the old pagan customs, as if that honors Christ.
Think about it- what does putting a pine tree in your living room have to do with Jesus? Would Jesus approve of a huge lie that is perpetuated on kids every year about Santa Claus?
Why do Protestants celebrate a Catholic holiday- Christs' Mass?
Real Christians don't celebrate the Pagan, Catholic holiday of Christmas!

A holiday supposedly celebrating the birth of Jesus Chirst, man who meant well but now is the cause of all the problems in the world because people missinterpretted him. But I digress, Chirstmas has been bastardized by Capitalists in the western society. It is nothing more than a holiday based on commercial greed.
Billy:"My teacher says that if I'm good Santa will give me presents!"
Some guy who knows what he is talking about: Well little Billy, your teacher is a lying fuck face. Christmas is nothing but an excuse for capitalists to get money. Capitalists are evil bastards. They shall all die.

An unholy plot to infest the hearts and minds of everyone with advertizements, commercialism, worthless products, and money-mongering. Devized by pagans. Modified by Catholics. Exploited by the international banker consortium.
Christmas has nothing to do with Jesus Christ and everything to do with oppressive routine-based worldy traditions and money.

Burn all Christmas trees and credit cards!
