Logical Flaws

I like to think of myself as a logical, reasonable, and rational person.

That is why Christmas makes NO sense to me.

I wonder if people really know that Jesus was not born on December 25, but was actually born in the spring/summer time (there were baby sheep at his birth, what mammal gives birth in the winter?). Besides, December 25 was the pagan holiday of Saturnalia. The whole idea of having Christmas on Saturnalia was to make Christianity appeal to the pagans. And did the pagans bite? They sure did. But they made sure to leave a mark. And now, thousands of years later, the pagans have retaken Christmas as people leave the churches empty and the shops full, forgetting to worship God but worshipping the almighty (but fluctuating) dollar.

Happy Saturnalia folks.
