I kinda like Christmas
. Even though I'm not a Christian
, I recognize the importance and value of the hope
s, and festivities
, and lesson
s the holiday inherit
ed from its pagan predecessor
I mean, hey, Christmas is most likely not even the correct date for Christ's birth. He was probably born in the spring sometime. So expanding the definition of the holiday a bit seems pretty reasonable.
For an excellent analysis of this dichotomy, please see the animated short, "The Spirit of Christmas." Like you haven't already.
