    Christmas was made to be a celebration of Christ, or maybe it was not. Too many opinions. Let's make this simple. Does everyone else receive gifts on YOUR birthday? No, so it is quite easily determined to be a holiday of greed these days, not Christ.

    Just because they were held at the same time of year doesn't make the true meaning of the 'Holiday' of Christmas have anything to so with those pagan holidays. Christmas and the pagan holidays have completely different meanings.

    Yes, we do celebrate the 5 days of Samhain the way the Celts did with the ancient custom of trick or treating and the bonfire on 05/11, which is much older than Guido Fawkes nand was celebrated before his execution.
