    WOW, and I used to live in Chelmsford Ma. way back when.
    What a shame the "In God We Trust" on the back of our currency has turned into, well, this list could go on forever, but turned into, "Hail to the Underworld", "In $$ We Trust" or .......never mind

    I think it is funny about the fuss about Santa, Holiday tree, Candy canes, etc since they are relics of pagan midwinter festivals and not part of Christianity at all.

    no, they cannot, they just start this crap every year thinking they will fuck it up for the Christians. They fail every year but they keep trying.

    What's even more hysterical is while they were pagan rituals initially they were adapted and adopted into the Christian religion by the converts and their priests. That would in truth make them part of Christianity. Go figure. :lol:

    Yes I suppose so. Some wven think that believeing in no god, afterlife, etc is a religion.

    I recommend everyone watching the History of Christmas on the history channel. I expect they will start showing it again soon.
