The Xmas Thread: Discussions on secular/pagan practices

This thread is for the discussion of secular/pagan Xmas problems and thoughts. I used Xmas to differentiate this thread form the Christmas thread. To discuss the birth of Jesus please use the Christmas Thread.

re: Decorating a lifeless IDOL?

Decorating a lifeless IDOL? How is THAT any less pagan than decorating a tree?

An idol is a statue or image which you worship as a god.

How many people worship the representations of Jesus, Mary, Joseph, shepherds, three kings, cattle and sheep which normally adorn the Nativity scene?

I know I don't.
