It was originally the celebration of winter finally starting to fuck off.
No, it's the day you make your loli the happiest of all.

Jesus was not even born in 25th December
"Christmas" has it's roots on Winter Festivals dating as far back as the Pre-Pagan days well into the days of Anicient Rome with the "Saturnalia" festival dedicated to the deity Saturn(which ultimately a lot of it's customs were eventually incorporated into "Christmas" and "New Year's Eve" when Ancient Rome fell under Christian rule) which is far earlier than Christianity ever existed
tfw lived in a country without christianism as a child and I actually believed christmas was some kind of Coca-Cola anniversary
Probably. Wasn't Santa Claus coke's mascot? Seriously though everything is driven by the money so probably.
Isn't Christmas just the church's attempt to erase some Roman holiday from the history books?
Some Jehova's witnesses, I think that's what they are called, told me that 25 december was a completely different festivity in the past and also that hell doesn't exist either, it's part of the greek culture or some shit like this, I don't remember.
Christmas is about CHRIST mas
Aka more christ as in lord and savior
the red colo(u)r of santa is due to cocacola advertisment
>Wasn't Santa Claus coke's mascot?
Cola is the reason why his most popular depiction is like we know it.
The spread of Christianity throughout the world made it so that they basically took over a shitload of elements from all of these ancient festivals and made these into what you now know as "Christmas" but in reality the holiday has nothing to do with the birth of Christ himself and has more to do with the spirit of all of these ancient festivals even if most people aren't aware
Is there anything worse that Christfags who pretend Christmas is a serious religious holiday?
>Santa Claus lives at the North Pole and rides a sleigh pulled by reindeer
>People put decorations on an evergreen tree (which they did not have in Nazareth)
>Eggnog was not served at the last supper
It's a pagan holiday appropriated by Christfags to pretend their dickhead was important. No one cares about Christianity on Christmas.
>It's a pagan holiday
That would be an incorrect statement because nobody identified as a "pagan" before the 20th century
That shit was born out of the Christian community as a slur for Non-Christians
The correct statement would be that it was an ancient religious festival
In fact it probably even predates the so called "Pagan" religions since it's literally supposed to be a festival celebrating Winter Solstice
Christmas and the winter solstice are two seperate holidays, and dind't have any historical association.
>christians not sure when jesus was born by the time the church is no longer persecuted 300 years after his death
>take popular existing holiday and convert it into your thing
>1700 years later some autistic fag on the internet pretends like it fucking matters
