If Jesus is the Reason for the Season
Why do we get presents 1dunno1



The Church didn’t celebrate the birth of Jesus for 300 years after his death and resurrection. However, by the beginning of the fourth century church officials decided to institute a holy feast day marking the birth. Since the Bible makes no mention of the date, or even the time of year, when Jesus was born, Pope Julius I “arbitrarily” chose December 25th as the day for the “Feast of the Nativity.” However, it took another 400 years before the “feast” had become common throughout the European continent.



Christmas, as we know it, didn’t begin to take shape until the early 1800s with the publishing of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The story emphasized goodwill and peace towards all and these sentiments rang true with what people supposed the Christmas holidays ought to be. However, once again, the exact traditions of the holiday were unspecified and America turned to their fellow European immigrants for traditions they could adopt. It took nearly 100 years before the traditions we generally celebrate today were in place, but by the mid 1920s the Christmas trees, holiday cards, festival of lights, gift giving, feasting, and Santa Claus were all a part of our culture—to the extent that many believed this was the way Christmas had always been celebrated.

'Jesus' has nothing to do with pagan Christmas.

Righteous anger and Zeal does not equate to hate,pride or arrogance and are fully justified.

Re: If Jesus is the Reason for the Season
How do we celebrate Christmas in my home? We don't waste a ton of money on decorations. I may buy a poinsettia. We don't exchange Christmas gifts. We don't have that Santa silliness. We do have a nice dinner on Christmas. We do bake some cookies and make some candy although I have cut way back on how much I cook. I do play Christmas music, especially the Christmas hymns. What we really do is celebrate the fact that Jesus Christ left heaven and humbled himself to save us from sin. Our church has a candle light celebration where we read the Scriptures and sing Christmas hymns. That is it. Christmas is pleasant and stress free. We don't have to "remember to put Christ back into Christmas" because we put the world out.

 Quoting: Goofy for God


But you haven't put it out far enough for if you did, you would not celebrate this holiday with Jesus in it at all. You have been lied to and have been tricked into celebrating a pagan holiday celebrating the birth of a pagan god. Wake up and research a little and whatever you do, don't believe the church. They have created this lie with the help of Satan!

Goofy. that is EXACTLY the way my family has been celebrating the past several years and they've been the most beautiful, stressfree, and joyous memories I've ever had.

Jesus IS the reason for the season. How have people gotten so far away from this notion?

Have a wonderful Christmas, Goofy.

Re: If Jesus is the Reason for the Season
The tradition of gift giving goes back to the Middle Ages when feudal lords would give gifts of food to the the poor at Christmas --usually the day after. Good King Wencheslas is a song about this tradition. It is also the reason we call this day Boxing Day -- because boxes of food, blankets etc. would be delivered.

There is a movement among many churches to restore this tradition. The Advent Conspiracy movement calls on Christians to spend less on gifts for one another so that money can be given to the poor.
