    Satanic!! Where did you get that?? Christmas and the date were chosen to include ex-pagans in a holiday. Do you know where the Yule log comes from? The Celts burned it as a mid-winter celebration. Roman pagans had a holiday in mid-winter to celebrate the rebirth of the sun. After the winter solstice, the days get longer and they were greatful that the sun was coming back. You need to get your facts straight before labeling anyone as satanic, Church Lady!!

    I am not a pagan so dont get on my case about going to hell either.

    Most people celebrate christmas because it is a tradition that was passed down from generations. Christmas to most people is the day that Jesus was born. This is not so. The bible does not have a record of the date that Jesus was born or the date that he died because it holds no significance. The most important thing is that he was born and that he died and that he rose again and is on his way back.

    Most christians celebrate this day because it is widely celebrated. Everyone celebrates christmas. christmas is a pagan holiday that was man made. it has nothing to do with Jesus because Jesus wasn't not born on that day. Just like Easter and all of the rest of the pagan holidays. As you can see in each of the holidays there is more popularity on Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny what does that have to do with Christ, nothing. But the bible says that a friend of the world is an enemy to God, so when you take on the traditions of the world you cannot claim to be a Christian. You cannot serve God and take on the traditions and ordinances of the world.

    I go by what the bible says, people can do what they want to do, but if I don't see it in there than we are doing something wrong.

    Santa spelled the other way around is Satan. Just switch the letters around. The story a a jolly old man in a red suit, who rides a sleigh and comes down the chimney. He lives in the north pole. This foolish story that was told is sin and it is a lie, just like the silly old bunny that can lay chocolate eggs. The things we teach our kids, for fun, its all a lie.

    The church has adopted traditions that are not Godly and just because the world has been celebrating these traditions does not make it right. I truly believe that everyone has a choice to do whatever they want to do, but my thing is Search the scriptures for yourself, make sure you are making your salvation sure. Because everything that glitters ain't gold. You can't serve God any kind of way he demands order.

    While some would say that Jesus is celebrated on this day, and that's okay, but I celebrate his life and his death everyday. Not just one day cause think about what if God just gave us something one day out of the whole year, if God was like us than we would be in HELL!

    To you who asked the question, keep up the good work, search the scriptures. Don't believe the hype that you hear and see cause even that is a lie. Satan is here and he's trying his best to collect the souls that he can and if he can do it through religious observations than he will. he will work in whom will let him work until they be taken out of the way. Be of good courage God will give you more insight, seek and you shall find.

    Christmas is not satanic. Get over it already. Christmas began as a pagan holiday (Mithra's birthday). In the early days of Christianity, it was "easier"for the missionaries to 'convert' pagan holidays to Christian holidays. Christmas is one of them.

    You overuse the term satanic- (is Christmas evil?). Come on. Get real.

    Jesus' birthday is in the Bible. Perhaps it is not listed as Dec. 25th.

    There is a reason why some important holidays fall in Dec.

    December is a cold, dark month. Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights- it is celebrated in December.

    Christmas is celebrated in December. Jesus is the "light of the world."

    These holidays are celebrated in December as way to promote 'light' (hope).

    Give up the Satanic gig. Get on with you life. This is getting very, very, old. (your argument, I mean)

    it is the celebration of the child Christ we celebrate. More or less having a Birthday Party for Christ. But it has over the many years come out of hand. People forget the real true meaning of it. "Celebration of the Birth of the child Christ Jesus" no have spoiled our self with earthly items and it is getting worse. We have forgotten to check our heart and soul. We just wonder what we can give or buy for the next person and how much it cost's. Try to celebrate in you family a x-mas without presents how many people say : that's all??? no really think about it? I have tried it and done it for a few years now, it was a real Eyeopener for my family,but no they glad we did it. No more rat race on what should we get for such and such and no more rat race on what we spend. It all has to be simple and made by the person if one of us likes to give. So keep on celebrating Child Jesus on x-mas MERRY X-MAS TO YOU ALL

    Because of man's traditions that have been past down from generation to generation. During Christmas season we are to celebrate the life of Christ, his birth. The confusion comes in when people started imitating the three kings, when they gave gifts to Jesus Christ during his birth.

    Traditionally, men did the same thing. On the day of Christmas, groups of people started giving out gifts to one another and the tradition continued unto our day in time.

    Now it has become commerical. Santa Clause, snow men, shopping, caroling, ect...It's not satanic, just pagan. People celebrate holidays because of the traditions the pagans set in the biblical days..Read Leviticus, Duetrom, Numbers, it explains all types of traditions to avoid and dangerous to follow when you are to be serving the True Christ...

    That is why it is so important to read your scriptures daily, to be feed the truth so you will not be caught up in the pagan traditions of men.

    There's nothing wrong with buying gifts for loved one's, or sending a card to someone, but do it because you want to, not because of a holiday..

    Most people celebrate Christmas to give thanks to someone who is very important to them. Not every holiday that you celebrate behind someone importants death is actually on their birthday. Just likeMartin Luther King,Jr. Yes it is true the bible says jesus did not want his followers to celebrate his birthday. But if you did your actual research then you would know that Jesus was actually born sometime in October not in December. So they're not actually celebrating his birth.

    You've put your own twist on the tradion. I suppose that you don't celebrate it, correct? You should do some research yourself and quit taking it out of context. Christmas means Christ's mass.

    A simple study of the tactics of the Church in Rome reveals that in every case, the church absorbed the customs, traditions and general paganism of every tribe, culture and nation in their efforts to increase the number of people under their control. In the 4th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it. Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians: widespread intoxication; going from house to house while singing naked; rape and other sexual license; and consuming human-shaped biscuits

    it isn't satanic. santa clause came from a priest that lived over a thousand years ago that dropped gold into chimneys. jesus christ was actually born around april, so in that sence some people would say that. of course it's not in the bible, most people did not like jesus when he died they thought he was a threat, of course he wasn't though. the gentiles had no reason for having a holiday for his birth. christ-mas. comes from christ.
