Someone please enlighten me as to why people keep saying that Christmas was a Pagan holiday. The tradition of receiving presents from Saint Nicholas once a year and celebrating Christ's birth originally belonged to ancient roman polytheists??? Wat?

It depends where the icon is, really. If it's in your home or on your lawn, if you have a religious bumper sticker on your car, if there's a Christian display at a Christian school, etc., then it's more than appropriate.

It's when courthouses, public schools, and other similar structures endorse the beliefs of a single religion we start to take offense.

You wouldn't see somebody telling a Jew to put out the candles on their Menorah or to get rid of their yamaka. Why is it always an attack on Christians?

MFW everyone in the comments.

Seriously, we get it. Go find something new about our religion to complain about.

Fun Fact! Christmas isn't the only holiday that uses a pine tree to celebrate. In fact this tradition was first used by the pagans. But it is is the only religion to put a star on top.

Well I think the point that people actually make is when Christmas or Christmas things are displayed or celebrated by or in public institutions. This is because the State is supposed to be secular and they do tend to celebrate Christmas and other things such as the pledge of allegiance, where you're supposed to say "Under God" or something (I'm not American) thats also imposing a religion on those kids when they don't believe in it. These people don't have a problem with the Christmas tree but with the State representing one religion as the norm. And since you cant represent all religions (or non-religions) equally throughout the country, the State shouldn't do this with just one, but with none. Imagine the US was an Atheist Country, and Christianity is now on the rise, so the invert or what is really going on, but the State would still claim to be secular, as they do today. If you were one of these Christians, wouldn't you be offended if the State preferred one specific religion or belief over the rest? And to have countless hints and celebratory symbols and speech about this religion in things where you and your kids seek a secular equality. Christians wouldn't like that very much. If Christians just put themselves in an Atheists shoes, and understand what they think, I think we would have a lot less Christians and a lot more Atheists.

Please please please don't think that all atheists are like yon derpette. I'm fine with your religion, just don't try to convert me. Every atheist I know of feels the same way.
I want to make this known.

I would like to make a clarification. An atheist is one who does no believe in any religion. An Antitheist is one who hates all religions and sees them as a cancer on society. However an Antitheist will call themselves an atheist simply because they see no difference. There are many types of atheist in the world. Gnostic, agnostic, implicit, explicit, broad, unfriendly, indifferent, etc. Each type has its own little quirks.

A truly inspired treatise on the impact of religious symbolism, OP, but you seem to have forgotten something important.

Ironic that America, a country founded for the purpose of religious freedom, has some of the most intolerant people on the planet. I'm not an openly religious person, but if I choose to celebrate Christmas, put up Christmas decorations, say Merry Christmas to people, or say something about God or Jesus and the Cosby Kids in public, I feel I shouldn't have to be stopped because a Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, etc. or even an Atheist, feels offended when they hear about beliefs besides their own.

Tree is a religious icon? I guess Santa Claus is also religious icon since some kids believe in it.

My father is Jewish and my mother calls herself a "recovering Catholic." I grew up as a Christian, technically - I used to go to church. I celebrate Christmas more for the idea of togetherness with family and giving to each other rather than the religious aspect.
As for religion, I'm apatheistic. It's very similar to agnostic/atheist, saying that "I don't know if there's a God," but it also says that "I don't care to know." I live my life without religion, and I base my morals without religious beliefs, which is something I've heard people say can't be done. Well, I'm doing it and I've been doing it for years.
Happy holidays, everyone.

If you were raised in even a somewhat religious family, your moral structure has been influenced by them (You might not directly base it on Religion, but you can't deny they still played a part the forming of your ideals).    
Anyways, here is a gif of a cat.

Do people even get offended by Christmas? Where is all this coming from?
User avatar #17 to #15 - pebar (12/10/2012) [-]
It comes from politically correct douchebags.
Especially in stores or state funded organizations, people will say happy holidays instead of marry christmas (which i'm fine with). Public christmas trees are being asked to be removed from state buildings because people don't want tax payer money going toward a religion.
Which in my opinion is ******** . A giant christmas tree outside a public building would increase moral and productivity. A great use of tax payer money.

**mrloki rolled a random image posted in comment #319 at I would like a president like this ** man, isn't christimas a pagan festival ? I mean, yeah somehow ppl came up with the idea that jesus was born on 25 of december (wich is stupid) but... it was a festival with gifts and stuff before the religious thingy got attached.

I'm not a christian, but I celebrate christimas !
User avatar #7 to #6 - pebar (12/10/2012) [-]
Christmas was moved to December to coincide with the Roman festival of Saturnalia so the early Christians wouldn't be persecuted for celebrating. But you are right; Jesus wasn't really born in December.
