Well then... I don't see a problem.

Merry Christmas anyway, and Happy Chanukah or Festivus for the restivus ;-]

Last night, the cashier at Sam's Club greeted me with a "Have a merry winter solstice."

TSNTPW: You realize it IS the winter's solstice, as you are posting on a science forum, no?

And you could always say "Merry Christmas" back, if you wanted to "turn the other cheek". LOL.

CT: The Christians hijacked the festival, as they did the spring fertility festival, renaming it "Easter".

BPL: If they decide to have a festival during the Winter Solstice, it means they've "hijacked" it? Prejudiced much?

The Winter Solstice festival long predates Christianity. The Christians hijacked the festival, as they did the spring fertility festival, renaming it "Easter".

That's summed up nicely, Deckard.

Firefly wasn't aiming for a serious discussion, as his o.p. clearly shows you.

Roeselare says:
The Genesis ideas about the origin of the Moon are less interesting than the scientific theory, so Bible literalists might be less interested in this subject. The Moon is what keeps our solstices predictable, and thus specifically insured our emergence here. Solstices on Earth are a fascinating scientific subject, IMO.

Firefly

Please tell us this :

Why ARE you posting this everywhere? How can you possibly think your thread fits a science Forum?

How strange that Firefly is tracking it as well! LOL!

Roeselare says:
but what about all the stories we can infer from the night sky? They all point to the 25th of December.

TN says:
Jesus was not born in December. More likely in October. Xmas used to be Saturnalia, celebration of the rebirth of the sun. The catholic church had the habit of renaming pagan festivities with a "christian" name to make it easier for pagans to adopt Catholicism as their religion.

Out of curiosity, would you have also been insulted if someone wished you a Happy Hanukkah?

Firefly, this is appalling, and I'm so sorry that you had to go through the embarrassment, the oppression, the disgrace of being wished a happy holiday that is different than a holiday which you celebrate.

Anyway, hope to see you all at the Opiconsivia chariot race! All hail Ops and Consus! Huzzah!
