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.

December 25, the day Jesus Christ's birth is celebrated. It is most likely not Christ's actual date of birth, but was probably chosen to supplant a pagan Roman holiday of the same date when the Roman Empire under Constantine converted to Christianity. This definition is way too wordy for this site.
Man, this Christmas shindig beats out Sacrificing Some More Goats To Jupiter Day hands down!

Once a definition for a sacred holiday celebrating the birth of baby Jesus. Now a modern slang term for capitalists raping your wallet while you waste all of your money on people you hate.
Once again Christmas has left my wallet and desire for sex with a woman in an elf suit empty.

A debased Christian festive day, an over-commercialized time of quiet desperation, but a time of supposed good-will to our fellow man. 'Cause being kind once a year is better than never at all.
"Can I give money to the Sally-Ann,Mum" "Yes, dear, after all it's Christmas." "Let's give to the Foodbank, after all, it's Christmas" "Should we invite poor lonely Kevin?" "Sure, it's only once a year."

What does all this secular, capitalist crap have to do with the birth of a religous leader in Bethlehem?
Christmas is just another one of those religous holidays who's spiritual meaning and icons have been replaced by the toy companies and retailers. It shows you the extreme sinfull nature of the human heart, to replace anything that has to do with God and spiritual matters.
