The Xmas Thread: Discussions on secular/pagan practices

Loutzenhiser's picture

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.

Any Christmas symbol or tradition that points to God or affirms that which is right and good is acceptable in God's eyes.

Some stupid idolater's misuses of creation or rituals in the past have nothing to do with me. There are no cooties.

Celebrate the goodness of Christ and His Nativity in any way you choose as long as no sin is committed and no sinful motive affirmed.

Have a blessed Advent and a wonderful Nativity.
