Christmas. There's a reason for that name. Are they christian jews? Why are traditional jews celebrating the birth of the son of God that they say has not come? Culture Appropriation.

Do what leftist blacks did. Make up your own celebration.

Oh, so it is strictly a celebration of the birth of Jesus? Even though it is celebrated at the wrong time of the year? Even though many of the parts of the "traditional" celebration are taken from pagan holidays?

For many, Xmas is a huge secular holiday. Far more people put up trees and decorations, give gifts, and celebrate the season than are actual Christians.

And why not let the children celebrate the secular side of the holiday? Its not like the Black Friday sales stampedes have anything to do with the birth of Jesus. Nor do the snowmen so often used in decorations.

Christmas can be a beautiful religious holiday. But it is also a commercialized, materialistic holiday for everyone.

The origin or the modern meaning? Originally is comes from "holy day". But the modern use is for days off to commemorate or celebrate. Even Merriam Webster says it is a day on which one is exempt from work.

oh..well...lookee here.


They don't like christmas...well they sure like that 100% discount they been getting in blue cities.

How many people belong to the BLM? 250k? 400K? 500K?

500,000 people amounts to 0.16% of the population. No real threat there.

Were there fewer shoppers because of all the articles condemning Christmas? Are there fewer people buying Xmas/Holiday trees?

It is funny that you bring up cultural appropriation. Most of the Xmas holiday was appropriated by early Christians from the pagans. The time of Christmas. The fact that they turned it from a celebration of the Sun God to a celebration of the Son of God. The decorated evergreen trees. Yule Logs and Yule tidings are directly stolen. Giving gifts to everyone, especially anonymous gifts. All of that is from pagan religions.

There is hardly a Christmas in memory upon which there wasn’t a war waged—or, at least, so it seems if one is tuned into American right-wing media. According to Bill O’Reilly in 2004, as a part of a plot to banish religion from the public sphere and bring forth a ‘brave new progressive world’, liberals were banning religious floats from parades and calling Christmas trees ‘holiday’ trees instead. Similar (but fewer) complaints have been made in the U.K.—say, about the use of the phrase “Winterval” instead of Christmas. But fear not, dear reader. The great and powerful Trump has singlehandedly won the war on Christmas by making it acceptable to say ‘Merry Christmas’ again—a phrase which, according to Trump, was never uttered publicly during the Obama years.

In reality, however, the so called ‘War on Christmas’ doesn’t exist. It never has.

Trump, at Florida rally, suggests he's fighting a new 'War on Thanksgiving'​

He gave no specifics on who he claims wants to change the holiday's name.

How many HOLY days are held at the same time as something else?? You lefties celebrate earth day and that's Lenin's birthday.

And at one time, "gay" meant happy. Language changes.

Now "holiday" means time off work. Are you telling me you never said you had a great 4th of July Holiday? Or enjoyed the 3 day weekend for the Labor day Holiday?

And the land was stolen. That was the way things worked back then. And for years to come. Do you think 100,000 members of the Cherokee, Creek, Seminole, Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes decided to walk to Oklahoma of their own free will?

But that does not stop the overwhelming majority of Americans from celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. At most it reminds them of the truth of history. That it is not all cheerful cooperation like we were often taught.

It is not just celebrated at the same time. It was wholesale appropriation. The census, which had Joseph and Mary traveling to Bethlehem, was held in September.

There are 12 religious holidays (Holy Days) in December. Why should only one be spoken of?

Ever hear of "To the victors go the spoils" That has been the story since time immemorial. Khan, Ottomans, Greeks, Romans, African tribes, American tribes (do you think the Navajo gave back Hopi, Zuni or any other conquered people), The Spaniards, Inca, Mayans, Aztec, Sioux? The US has made life better for EVERY group that they have ever conquered. Native Americans receive benefits to this day, black people (slave relations or not) have been the recipients of special favors for over 50 years. I know you're woke, so you'll be apologizing for something that you had no hand in until you're in your grave. Thanksgiving is a day set aside to offer thanks to whatever supreme being you choose for the wonderful life we lead, not a time to point fingers for injustices, real or imagined.
