    I believe you are correct about this.

    Perhaps, but I'm still pretty certain that Jesus is not the reason for Hanukkah.

    There is NO Biblical support for ANYTHING we do as "Christmas". There is no present exchange at a birthday in Jewish tradition. There is nothing about holiday decorations, in fact gaudy applications carry stern warnings in the OT.

    The tree and boughs tradition come from Middle ages Europe where peasants brought evergreen boughs into their homes for freshness, but also part of the pagan concept of worshiping the forest and praying to animals.

    Green and Red are the predominant colors because they were the easiest to produce back in the day, and the feast comes from the pagan ritual of feasting on the winter equinox in recognition of winter gods and their arrival.

    San ta Claus is an aberration of the truth, Nicolas I was noted for distributing food and toys to the poor, whose tale became about "Father Christmas" and, of course, Saint Nicolas and later "Santa Klas". The red suited version so ubiquitous today was invented by the Coca Cola company in the early 1900's.

    And, for the record, male Reindeer lose their antlers in the winter, so the fat **** is exploiting women as well.

    For Christians I ask this, if Jesus were staying with you for the holidays, would there be a Black Friday?

    Yes, I realize those things. The early church just needed to convert the pagans, and integrating some of the their seasonal rituals was a good way to help accomplish that.

    So that's why Chanukah sucks.

    Another culture warrior striking a blow against the war on Christmas!

    How dare any other religion schedule a holiday during the Christmas season! It is obvious by trying to celebrate Hanukkah they are trying to kill Christmas. We must be ever vigilant against the enemies of faith and religion especially if those enemies come from faith and religion. NOTHING can deter us from celebrating the made up, fake holiday of Christmas and celebrating the one true religion to the detriment of everything and everyone else. Regardless of the fact that almost every single Christmas celebration is firmly based in pagan ritual. Logic, intelligence and common courtesy have no place when discussing the Prince of Peace!

    Feeling a bit hyperbolic this morning? Some really good egg nog may help with that.
