Should Christmas be ignored because it is a Pagan Festival


Christmas used to be Yule tide and the Roman Saturnalia. Its like an official birthday for the head of state. Nobody knows the real birthday and the current date wasa chosen to match Saturnalia. Many Xmas customs have pagan origins and some Christmas Carols seem to have pre-christian undertones. Given all this should the devoutly religious ignore Christmas and volunteer to work as usual?

    Exactly, SomeoneWho Knows. Screaming about Halloween as a Pagan Festival is nonsensical as there are few pagans care about it, and the same for Christmas. Many use these festivals the way Christians do, as an excuse to get drunk and misbehave.
