I'll bite : we're not celebrating "Christmas", but since this is a
holiday, we take the opportunity to see friends and family, party, eat
well and be merry, just having fun and looking forward to longer days.

sounds like a communist to me. I'm only opposed to Republican Jesus.

And Wurfle the Foo-Foo Bird. Foo-Foo Birds are very round and reach great
sizes. They're omnivorous. And they need a lot of stones to help digest
their food. They named themselves twice after the Exquisite Bird God Foo
figuring that this would bring them good luck. Unfortunately, the Foo-Foo
Birds are dying out, since both the male and female Foo-Foos are very
beautiful. They choose to mate with themselves.

Why can't the proven serial liar stop lying about us, to us? He's been
doing it all day and every day for the last twenty years.

In this case, he knows perfectly well that we would have to believe it
to be against it.

But it's merely something out somebody else's religion which he has
neither the courtesy nor the commonsense to keep where it belongs.

In all those years, he has never once taken any notice of the fact
that only Christians believe Christian doctrinal presumptions, and
only Catholics believe the Catholic ones - but from day one, he
treated us as if we did and were backsliding Catholics wanting to come
back into the fold.

He's certifiably insane.

This is rot.

It made perfect sense for the early church to plant its new holidays
on top of old ones. Sometimes there was a religious resonance.
Christians see the judicial murder and supposed resurrection of
Josh as a completion of the covenant between Yahooey and the Hebrews.
If their savor was born during lambing season, which is suggested
by "shepherds watching their flocks by night," Christmas and Passover
would be too close to each other. By lacing one holiday in spring
and the other 8 or 9 months later, it allowed for the establishment of
a "liturgical year." Starting with "Advent," the weeks leading up to
the Feast of the Nativity (Christmas), then proceeding through Christmastide
to Lent, Easter, Pentecost (apostles given the Holy Spirit)and then
Ordinary Time, until it is Advent again.

Telling the story of the prediction of Josh's arrival, his birth, life,
death and supposed ascension into heaven, in that order, is what putting
the holidays in order allowed. If we had access to the actual Common
Era, modern calendar dates those events took place on, or were said to
take place on in the case of the ludicrously unbelieveable ones, the
gospel story might hop around quite a bit. Remember that, prior to
Gutenberg, most Christian believers HEARD the gospel, rather than read it.
Literacy was much less common, and books fiendishly expensive, as they
were hand-made goods, in fragile formats: papyrus scrolls, for example.

Academic theologians, rather than self-taught "bible study" mavens,
would tell you it doesn't really matter what day Josh's birth is
celebrated on, what matters is what you believe did or did not happen,
and that, if to keep early Christians from being killed by angry mobs
because they were impious in respect to the Roman ghodz or local
equivalent, because they didn't revel during Saturnalia or the feast
of the Undying Sun, it was necessary to sneak Christmas past the pagans
using calendrical camouflage, so be it.

That said, Christmastide ends tomorrow morning, Epiphany, in the Western Church. "12th night," aka "Epiphany Eve" is tonight.

It used to extend to 2 Feb, "Candlemass," which is 40 days past Christmas.

In New Orleans, Mardi Gras season starts when Christmastide ends.

And a whole lot more appropriate. But in the case if the birth of the Lord,
he came as the new light coming out of the darkness of sin, thus the farmer
habit of looking forward to the growing season was also a good selection for the
celebration of Jesus' birthday.

Of course, the week long celebration of the solstice ends 3 days before Christ
leaves no room for overlap.

I went through the Bible like Archbishop Ussher did, but with greater
attention to detail, and I have creation down as occurring in 4,163 BCE,
not 'billions of years' ago. Unless you're telling me all those begats

Lies?? Like all scripture being literal rather than spiritual? Those lies?

Did you use Matthew or Luke? Did you know that Matthew goes back to the first
non-pagan Abraham but Luke goes back to Adam, each being 42 generations.

I wonder what each generation came to in years. I wonder if Adam really lived
to be 930 years old?

Chicken Little gets hit on the head with an acorn and goes around
clucking that the sky is falling. He even writes it down in a book.
Later the evidence shows that it was just an acorn, and Chicken Little

a shit about them doing it.
God selected 12/25 as the celebration date of his birthday billions of years
before the farmers got in the act.
LOL
You are going to have to do better than that.
Can't change the facts.
No, *you* can't.
God already established the facts. Why would I want to change them?

The Rockettes play at two places:
Radio City, and over in the Jersey Meadowlands.

That's why they had wideouts named Rockette and Rockett,
known as "E" and "no-E". It was very sad when E's career
ended abruptly last year.

We aren't. Some of us are getting together with friends or family and just using
the day to get together no religion involved. Maybe some of us atheists got together on Chanukah for the same reason or the Winter Solstice. You shouldn't make assumptions.

It is and has been for thousands of years the winter solstice, why are

So you want to celebrate a holiday that was stolen and is given in the
name of something that never existed whose supposed birth was not for
another 7 months... Wow how about we celebrate your stupidity or
perhaps your insanity??

You call it christmas because it is all you know. You are a christian
so your knowledge of pretty much everything that is not christian
related is unknown to you. As I said above Your christmas was
celebrated thousands of years BEFORE some old men invented the story
that led to the christmas you know of today. Atheists do not celebrate
anything that has anything to do with your fairies.

Good food, good drink, good company, good times, good memories.

The most religious (Christian) element was a gingerbread cross decorated
with a chocolate Santa Claus made by a niece.

[duh?]
Why do you dumb-ass Christians pretend that Jebus was born within a
few days of the Winter Solstice, a long-established pagan holiday,
when there is no evidence for this, and then dare to ask why we are
celebrating our own holiday?
