The winter solstice happens whether you are pagan or not. It has nothing to do with religion.

But most of the Christmas traditions largely come from the pagans. Jesus is not the reason for the season, it really is the winter solstice. That is why, as an atheist, I have no problem saying merry christmas to someone.

LOL, the OP thinks Winter Solstice only happens if you're pagan.

Ohhhhh, how priceless.

Oskar is right. Jesus was not born on December 25. The Church moved the date of his birth to coincide with the pagan holiday. A Christmas tree has absolutely nothing to do with Christianity either...the tree was a pagan tradition.

So did you reply back with the friendly Christian acknowledgment of pagan greetings?

Merry Christmas or F*** you!

What was the date that Jesus was born on? Did the Julian calendar even exist then?

I really love how some people are so against Paganism when they don't know anything about it. They are usually Christian but most Christian holidays are based off of Pagan ones. Christmas, Easter, etc.

I think it was January 6, which coincides with Three Kings Day, which is celebrated in a few countries (but not the U.S.).

Much like Easter. They invented/moved their holiday to take over a pagan holiday.

Well... Actually, while a lot of the Easter traditions were in fact taken from Pagan spring rights, the holiday itself remained on the proper schedule. See, the historical events surrounding the holiday very much demand that the holiday take place around Passover, which it has to this day.

Consider me ejibicated now. I thought Easter was moved also, I already knew that most of the traditions are in fact pagan.

I don't know, if there was a group of people like you, you'd be giving them a run for their money.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 17, 2012 5:20:53 PM PST
So you're saying that, as an atheist, you can support and participate in traditions that are derived from people who worshipped rocks?

personally, I think people who make statements like this, regardless of their religious beliefs, are the most ignorant people on the planet.
