Actually a lot of the traditions are from pagan cultures. You ever wonder why the tree chosen to celebrate a birth in the mid-east is a pine? Ever wonder what Yule is and why it has a log?
The simple fact of the matter is there’s good reasons to call it “the holiday season”, in between this Thursday and the Tuesday seven weeks from now there’s a whole bunch of holidays from multiple religions and secular life.
Even the gift buying, depending on who you know could have nothing to do with Christianity. Most of the folks on my shopping list are Jews and atheists. The only regular church goer on my list is the mother-in-law, and she’s not really even on my list, the wife shops for her. The wife and I like to decorate, but the decorations are geared towards pretty light, with a lot of pepper themes because we’re in the southwest and like peppers both in our belly and on your walls and fence. I buy holiday lights and send out holiday cards, I don’t do the tree thing though, holiday or otherwise.
Nobody is failing to acknowledge your presence. But maybe you should be acknowledging the presence of others. The percentage of folks who do Christmas the way you do is pretty small, you share the next 6 weeks with millions of people who don’t advent, and don’t really Christmas.
It’s pine because it’s evergreen, and it goes back to 15th-16th century Christian Europe. The first tree with lights was by Martin Luther.
And the incidence of followers of Odin is a bit on the low side these days.
When they step forward in vast numbers, I’ll loan them a log. In the meantime, I’ll consign them to Marvel comics.
most celebrate Christmas whether that pisses off the idiots on the left or not.
Christmas is Christ being born and what this country had for a tradition.
The turds which don;t seem to think this is not a problem by not saying Christmas seem to not understand what the reason why the left wants to not say it in stores.
It;s Christmas, the founding fathers wanted this, it;s a federal holiday and if stores then can;t be bothered for PC reason or more of a anti Christian view then so be it.
Onlyin America does this crpa happen and I;ve been to many countries where they ave more lefty loons than we do here so that speaks volumes about the idiots saying so what

Your presence, you do know you are on a pro God Pro Christian conservative website right, what’;s next posting you guys need to stop nailing yourselves to a cross.
you’re right, some don;t celebrate thanksgiving so stop saying it, , hey I know many which do not do 4th July so lets stop saying that.
I mean after all you said it, why not acknowledge others and lets not have any holidays and lets get rid of THIS FEDERAL holiday
The reason why it;s a holiday is because it;s Christmas, that is it, if some want to join the left an dnot have stores say it then so be it but there is a bigger picture why the left wants to get rid the saying of Christmas
