According to professors of Theology - who thus know more about your 'beliefs' than you do - Jesus (if he existed [/Spartan Laconic Wit]) was born in September.
Christmas is merely the stealing of the pagan Winter Solstice Festival (just as Easter is pagan Eostre) by the early Christian church.
Y'know Ms. FAILin, Christmas is celebrated in Japan (particularly Xmas Eve; it's seen as a romantic time for couples)? Explain, please, if that is a mainly Shinto/Zen Buddhist country...?
Winter Solstice is a time of celebration of life - even in the depths of nature going into 'stasis' in the cold & darker months - and sharing, especially by Wiccans/Neo-Paganists. We Atheists are helping in their re-appropriating what was taken from them. And we celebrate Xmas, because we can.
I bet that really pisses you off! [/Clarence Boddicker]
