Top Ten Things Christmas Isn't About

The Top Ten

1 Santa Claus

Since it seems some people are getting confused, I thought I would just clear up the fact that I am not saying these things aren't part of Christmas, I am simply saying that they are not the central idea of Christmas. Christmas is about Jesus coming to earth, and eventually sacrificing himself for our sins. It is about Gods perfect love for us. - GrimmShady

Nice list, GrimmShady.

2 Giving

This one will be quite controversial. People always say " Christmas isn't about getting, it's about giving! " But let's face it, the statement "Christmas is about giving" is no more true than " Christmas is about getting". Giving is obviously a great thing, but don't be fooled. - GrimmShady

It is exactly about giving. The giving of a gift to a special person or people represents the gifts the Three Wise Men brought to baby Jesus. - Britgirl

You are half correct, half not. You see, giving is obviously a very important part of Christmas, but it is not entirely what Christmas is about. It is about Jesus coming to earth and reuniting us with God. - GrimmShady

Jesus is God's ultimate gift to humanity.

9 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). ...read more.

The Catholic Church banned all Paganism in ancient times but Saturnalia/Yule was too popular that it wasn't banned and turned into Christmas and they made it up as Jesus Christ birthday because he didn't have a birthdate in the Bible.

Sorry but its Yule celebrated in December, but Catholics stole it and turned it into a Christian holiday and is now known as Christmas. Jesus isn't born in December.

Lol to the person (troll maybe? ) who added this and keeps disliking our comments. CHRISTmas is about Christ. You can't take that out lol.

Even though the Bible doesn't mention Christmas?
Even though Jesus' birthday wasn't guessed 'till the 3rd or 4th century
Even though the early Church didn't celebrate birthdays, considering them a Pagan custom?
Even though December 25th is actually Mithra's birthday?
Even though Christmas is actually a mix of multiple Pagan holidays and celebrations, like Saturnalia and Yule?
What day was Jesus born on does it say in the Bible?

WRONG it's a Roman Pagan/Celtic Pagan holiday originally but it couldn't be banned because of popularity and because Jesus did not have a birth date in the Bible so they made it into the Birth of Jesus.

Wrong! Jesus Is the Reason for the Season. In order to keep Christ in Christmas, one must keep MASS in Christmas as well. - clusium

Snow has nothing to do with Christmas

16 Bible

It's the Book of Shadows not the Bible. Catholic Church banned Paganism. Even Ancient Roman Paganism. Then it came back as Wicca.

17 Catholic Church Catholic Church

They banned the original real holidays from Ancient Roman Pagan and Paganism.

18 King James

He had a phobia of witches. See why older holidays where hijacked and turned into Christmas.

Which shouldn't even exist in UK when we don't have Thanksgiving or even know that much about it.
