Keep the X in Xmas
The next time someone goes off about The Reason for the Season, or Keeping Christ in Christmas; remind them of the following…
*Christmas Trees have nothing to do with Christmas. They are symbols that are pagan in nature.
*Jesus was not born on December 25th – his birthday was moved to this date to coincide with pagan festivals celebrating the re-birth of the sun.
*Santa was not a wise man, but he might have been a shaman.
*Gift giving on Christmas is a tradition traced back to festivals in Ancient Rome that had nothing to do with the birth of Christ.
*The Yule Log is yet another pagan symbol used to represent the conquering of darkness and the rebirth of the sun.
