QotD: Christmas

Question: Has the meaning of Christmas been distorted?

My Answer: Yeah. Most Christians I know barely know why we celebrate Christmas. It's a commercial holiday, now. Religion? What's that got to do with it? 😛

  1. It is to celebrate the birth of this carpenter who had some crazy ideas and some people didn't like them. His name is Gunner and he's dating my mom.

  2. Meaning of Christmas, eh?

    I know that it is a celebration of Jesus' birth, and there seem to be some elements from other religions tossed in too.

    One thing that I think is interesting to note is that there is no mention of the holiday at all in the Bible. So, it makes me wonder what this really is all about after all. Until I have the answer to that I won't know if it is distorted, but I do know that whatever the meaning -- it has undergone a number of changes.

    Guess I got to thinking too deeply about this one.
