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).
Fucking Christmas. I wanna get drunk.

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!!

The day you recieve tons of gifts from your rich friends and family. Otherwise, it's just another holiday about Jesus.

wat was first the celebration of our lord, Jesus Christ, it is now a celebration toward greed, stress, and disappointment. its not even a christian holiday anymore, seein as how its just an excuse for all religions to get ppl crap instead of celebratin their own holidays.
So basically, we're praisin Santa Claus ans money instead of Jesus Christ, which is not makin Jesus very happy that he did all that shit to save our sinning asses.

Originally a celebration of the sun for the vikings in Europe. When christianity showed its ugly face in Europe, the Vikings where converted, and to compensate for the loss of their day of celebration, they claimed Jesus was born on this day. In Denmark, a certain type of porridge is still a very common thing to eat as one of the things for dinner at the 24th. Also, in (northern europe at least) Europe, gifts are unwrapped in the evening of the 24th of December, usually somewhat after dinner.
Oh my, didn't christianity rape this aspect of our lives as well ?

a scam to spend money you dont have on shytt you dont need. used to be about a book character jeesus but now is about getting drunk off egg nog, dressing up your dog in a stupid reindeer sweater, and hanging flashing bulbs off the side of your house.
Sally: I love Christmas!
Frank: Me too!
Sally: Let's get a second mortgage to buy gifts for people we secretly hate to celebrate Christmas.
Frank: Yay, holidays.
