My Christmas Post:

I reproduce this every Christmas. The point is to show that Christmas historically is just as much a secular and pagan holiday as it is a Christian one. Money quote:

Christmas perfectly exemplifies the larger phenomenon of the unique culture that is the West which has a religious (Jerusalem) and a Secular-Pagan (Athens) origin. Culturally, the West presently is and always has been every bit as much of a Pagan society as it is Christian.

Merry Christmas fellow secularists, freethinkers, and pagans. You "own" Christmas as much as the Christians do. And to my Christian readers: Merry Christmas as well.
