Christian holiday moved to conflict with the time of year when everyone everywhere (and everywhen) celebrates the winter solstice (point of Earth's orbit where, in the northern temperate zones, the sun's zenith slows its southern decent and begins moving north again = another year to live).

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).

The release date of Alien vs Predator Requiem (AVP-R)
Person 1: What are you doing on Christmas?
Person 2: Oh, you know, spending some time with the family. You?
Person 1: Fuck that, I'm going to see AVP-R.

The best freakin' holiday ever! Except it's starting to cross the line from really awesome, to annoying, because it's starting before thanksgiving, more than a month before christmas.
Jeff: Man, Christmas rules!
Ian: Hell yeah it does!

Jesus: Damn you advertisers for stealing my birthday! DAAAAAAAMN YOOOOUU!

The time of year when Santa rises from the dead. Hypnotises a couple of reindeer hanging out in a log cabin to be his slaves and uses them to carry his fat carcass to small childrens house and lick the naughty ones whilst emptying his bulging red sack down the chiminey of the good ones...then killing the reindeer and storing them in the freezer...

Christmas has many origins pagan and christian but the christmas tree originally came around in the 14th century i believe it would be hung upside down and represented the christian triad, meaning the father son and holy ghost. Evergreen trees were chosen because of their conic shape which if viewed only two dimensional looks like a triangle and represents the triad.
yay christmas a temporary end to an economic repression

One of those holidays, like Easter, that replaces mankind's Savior and the hope we have received, with a fictional character, commercialism and monetary posessions: cd players, TIVO, digital tvs, DVDs, video games, books, jewelry, IPODs, PEDs, cell phones, stuff for your car, stuff to put things in, stuff top put things under, stuff to put things on, stuff for more stuff. Christmas is just an exucuse the retailers and toy companies use to make more $$. It is disgusting and deplorable. I love the holiday but get disgusted at all the commercialism.

I have no idea what snowmen, tinsel, mistletoe, stockings, wreaths, eggnog, flying reindeeer and Santa Clause have to do with the real meaning of Christmas.
Christmas has been turned into a holiday which has become almost totally pegan. So pagan that political correctness wont' even allow us to use the word CHRISTMAS anymore, for fear it will "offend" those who do not practice a religion. It has been replaced with words or phrases like The Holidays, Happy Holidays, Seasons Greetings. How stupid!!
