More specifically, if you are a stickler for details, according to experts on the matter, history convincingly shows that Dec. 25 was popularized as the date for Christmas, not because Christ was born on that day but because it was already popular in pagan religious celebrations as the birthday of the sun.
|Actual snowfall in Bethlehem, not in September|
The end of September as the likely time of Jesus' birth according to calculations based on census being taken at the time and other event that are closely related. Please note that there are no records of snow ever falling on Bethlehem in September...so take the fucking snow out of your Nativity Crèche.
So, I suggest to Fox and the other Christianist mouthpieces to give it a rest...the holiday season is one for celebration, getting together with family and a well deserved break from the tortuous work routine. I forget, the decorations are festive and pretty...but keep your Nativity crap out of public buildings...and the cross? It is a repugnant and morbid reminder that religion wants us to feel sorry, to make us feel grief and guilt for his crucifixion...You can feel as guilty as you need to during the Easter week, save it until then.
