Christmas Orgins

Most people know that Christmas has pagan roots, right? But Christians tend to overlook this fact. I assume they do so because they believe Jesus is "real" and not like all the other "pagans" that came before him. Question: What makes Jesus real? And what makes all the others "fake"?

I'm not sure how much time it's worth investigating these questions, but probably more time than the average Christian spends examining them.

And maybe I'm even wrong about my initial assumption. Maybe most people don't know that Christmas (and Christianity) has pagan roots.

Anyway, Merry Christmas.
