This day may not be on the exact same day as a pegan holiday but is very close to it, the same way easter is. I understand that you may be offended by people saying that chirstmas is not a christian holiday, it is. But at the same time it is MY beleif (i.e. not fact, so you can't get upset at me with MY beleif, or maybe you can) that being a christian allows many people not to accept facts and make up there own history, the same way the Japanese don't teach WW2 in school or the germans don't teach about the Holocost. So for your own pleasure, if you are not to proud or to stuborn I present to you some fun reading.
