Where on earth did you get that idea from? Wink

In its present form its more about time off work, having a good feed and a booze up!

Oh - and spending lots of money on pressys - hence all the overwhelming advertising on TV!!!

The Christams festival has its roots way before the fables in the bible, and I dont celbrate the apparent birth of jesus any more than I would celebrate any others such as Mohamed or Posiden?

I joke, but seriously there is no way I can pay a cheque into my bank without taking time off work. The opening hours are actually 09:30-15:30 monday to friday.

Quote:I don't think so. Best estimate I've seen, oddly enough, was September 11th. 25th December is the birthday of Mithras, and the last day of Saturnalia.


Come on Keith you know its Christmas Day --

"The Holy Bible says --
Hark now Herald Angels sing
A new King born today,
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
Was born on Christamas Day"

Personally I don't think it matters what you believe, the important thing is that we all enjoy the Winterval Wink

To me Christmas and the Festive Season is instilled in our culture and I feel it is a time to celebrate relationships with family and friends. It's also a time to relax during the deep winter and was always thus, long before Christianity hijacked the pagan festivals that preceded Christmas as a Christian celebration. Having said that, some of the Christian inventions, such as Christmas Carols, enhance and enrich the experience so, as part of my cultural upbringing, I'm all for it.
