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).
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"
Burn all Christmas trees and credit cards!
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?
