Easter its self is named after a pagan deity.
Christmas has wayyyy more than yule related to paganism like the worship of a tree and putting offerings under it... the date it falls on is the birthdate of tamuz.

I live in the Bible Belt, so hateful an ignorant comments are common around here. I had no idea a news channel would go that low, though. :(
I've even been threatened to have my kids taken away. :(

A vast majority of the christmas holiday is taken from pagans. The 12 days of christmas, the nativity scene, the fat jolly man... Yule isn't just celebrated on the 21st, it's a 12 day festivity that the average day used to be celebrated on the 25th of December. I mean, even the christmas "Santa" is said to be St Nicholas, but why does he need 2 days out of a month? (Dec. 6th).



Sorry, a pointless rant, this whole christmas issues gets my panties in an unnecessary twist. lol

I'm a Norse Paganist. Fox News is about as informative and understanding as the News channels in China. All I can say is that I can't wait to see what Jon Stewart says about this.

Imo...if your holiday includes you doing pagan things...it a pagan holiday... fyi "jesus christ" wasn't even born in december.... nor was the letter "j" possible to have been used to name him... due to the fact their was no letter j. :\

Quoting ღFrodoliciousღ:" Well yeah, but it's not Yule, nor is it a Pagan holiday. Christians are notorious for taking parts of ... [snip!] ... parts of the Pagan holidays and using them under new names for their own holidays. Yule is a few days before Christmas, lol. "


But it wasn't always, it used to be celebrated for 12 days. Not just 1 day. Christians can go ahead and celebrate what they want, but I'll never see it as anything but a holiday stollen from the pagans.



ETA: Actually, if it was just "stollen" I'd have no issue. But they took it with force, and that's not cool with me.

I have been a Pagan and Wiccan for 18 years, and to me, water off a ducks back.
Misconceptions about any religion are always going to be around.

Yeah but you would think that a news program would at least try to have the facts straight and attempt to be professional.
