Perhaps it is time to take back the holiday from the Xtians and return it to the winter solstice celebration it once was. Christ's Mass should be celebrated to commemorate the Last Supper after all (it's what the word means), and regardless, the birth was in April, moved to December to usurp what was otherwise a rip roaring good time for the "heathens". Think big orgies, loud parties, and general debauchery. Ah, those were the good old days..
Sad but so true... This one hits the nail right on the head. It's like we are still struggling and at least trying to keep the Christmas spirit of giving alive when it's become almost outdated! Sometimes the OLD way is just better!
