Well technically she's right. How do you think early Christians got all those converts? Io Saturnalia, everyone!
she is right, but I think everyone needs to stop giving a fuck what other people believe in. don't like the play? DON'T FUCKING GO! Let the kids mother raise the boy she wants, not the grandmothers way. she had her turn already, the mom needs to tell the grandma to step off imho
While I agree that kids should be raised open minded (I have different beliefs than everyone else in my home), it is still a parents right to raise a kid with certain beliefs. It sucks, but they do have the right to teach there kids that should pee in the shower if they so choose.
Don't you fucking hate those religious freaks? I sure do. It's ok to have a religion and be proud of it but you shouldn't go around shoving it down people's throats. -___-
Well, Christmas IS taken from the pagan celebration of the winter solstice, or "Yule". So in a sense she was right :P
And it's not even like they try to hide it, for example: the exact word "yule" is in at least one common Christmas carol It's like somebody taking a book of the federalist papers and writing "by _____" under the title, then turning it in for a grade to their teacher and receiving a nobel prize for it (to exaggerate, point stands though)
Gosh. Isn't Christmas a Christian holiday even? Nothing Pagan about it
That is a misinterpretation of that verse. Back then it was common for people to carve a god idol out of wood and decorate with precious metals, then worship it. That's what that verse is referring to. According to Jeremiah, God doesn't care if you decorate a tree, so long add you don't worship it. I've never heard of anyone worshipping a Christmas tree... Unless you count that "Christmas Tree" song.
well christians werent looking to celebrate the winter solstace like pagans, but the birth of their savior so they didnt really get the idea from the pagans, they just got the date from pretty much every other religion around in the time because most actually have some sort of holiday on the 25. whether it be minor or major. it was used as a way to get people to more easily convert but it was more so a way to escape persecution. christians were killed and this way they could celebrate and everyone would assume it was due to the pagan holiday, not the christian one, yada yada yada.
Damn that old hag needs a hug. Just because she doesn't believe in it, doesn't mean she has to ruin little kids fun.
Christmas takes place on the original date for the winter solstice so technically she is right. It would be better if there were no plays that people would take offense to, just because of batshit insane people who are too sensitive. The kids don't deserve to feel that upset. I hope everyone cheers up.;3
