    DO YOU BELIEVE CHRISTMAS IS THE CELEBRATION OF JESUS OR SOME OTHER FORM OF CELEBRATION?

    Both, but not really....

    Primarily it's a pagan festival to celebrate the Winter Solstice and was called (and still is by the wiccans) Saturnalia.

    Constantine, when he hijacked the original church, had to attempt to appease all his pagan religions into accepting watered down Christianity in an all encompassing establishment organisation, so grabbing pagan festivals and hanging quasi Christian celebrations was a great marketing plan.

    Saturnalia became Christmas.
    Passover became Easter and incorporated pagan roots.

    But so what?

    Most have no idea and indeed will get offended by the suggestion that their festivals are pagan, and just don't even suggest that the Jewish festivals MAY have some bearing on 'our' Christianity.... most have forgotten that we are grafted into a Jewish root.

    Sorry, stop the rant!

    Christians are those who follow the man Jesus and not the Spirit Christ.
    They are all bound by a common false doctrine.

    They are all pagans, so therefore all festivals of the pagans are pagan festivals.

    To me Christmas is somewhat a celebration of Jesus but moreso a celebration of togetherness and kindness.

    I see the start of a New Year as one to be thankful to God/Jesus for making it to another year.

      Did you thank God/Jesus for those who didn't make it another year as he was too busy making sure you made it?

    who cares !
    the celebration, if there's any, should be within.
