Um, Christmas trees have nothing to do with religion, as a Christan you don't seem to even know much about your own religion?

Also no one gives a **** , the war on Christmas is fake.

Why is it SO hard for people to just go their own way and shut the **** up about this kind of unimportant **** ? God damn.

The Christmas tree is a pagan symbol...alsoxmas isn't taking the "christ" out of Christmas.

Well, I guess that makes me an asshole, because Christmas offends me. Not the religious part, because that would make me even more of an asshole than I am. I get offended by Christmas whenever I hear the music or see the decorations in stores, because Christianity has allowed the day that supposedly commemorates the day of their god's birth to become a celebration of the wonderful system of economy known as capitalism. So no longer is it Christmas, it's more like Capitalistmas, so **** you, I'm observing Saturnalia.

And also, the Christmas tree originated in Germany as a Pagan tradition. Also, Santa Claus came from the Netherlands, and the image we have of him today is purely for money. Boom. Red thumbs ahoy.

So do you get offended by Valentine's, Halloween, Fourth of July, and Thanksgiving, too?

I am not a religious man, but I do not condemn religion. I accept it, even when I was a Christin youth. But I still celebrate x-mas because I believe it is a progressive social practice that is important. This belief includes any and all other holidays that bring people together.

correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the tree a symbol for an old German religion?

Christmas trees have their origin in Germany and other Norse countries, where they actually sacrificed people by hanging them by the branches. They also made a wooden phallus-shaped figure which they dripped goat-blood on.

I am not even joking.

...A Christmas tree isn't a religious symbol... It is a tradition traced back to Victorian England....

So if we should be tolerant to others beliefs shouldn't we allow them to use 'symbols' if they wish? We're not allowed to tell Islamics not to wear burqa's because we have to 'respect their beliefs' and yet they are allowed to tell us to take down Christmas trees?
Yes I know its a pagen holiday but its still hypocrisy at its finest.

1. Not only Christians celebrate Christmas
2. Christmas isn't even a Christian holiday
User avatar #161 to #158 - bananarchy (12/10/2012) [-]
No it's not, it was celebrated by pagans years before the supposed birth of Christ and was merely adopted by Christians

Beliver or not, Xmas is Xmas... It's not about the faith, but about the message of peace and joy...Like the "pagan's" celebrations that exisisted before Xmas...
