Christmas conundrums.

DO you like Christmas? There are some people who like Christmas and there are some people who dislike Christmas.

Anti-Christmas people are entitled to dislike Christmas and tell people (even pro-Christmas people) that they dislike Christmas, but they are being very selfish if they tell anyone that Christmas ought to be abolished for good.

Anti-Christmas people aren't being unreasonable in disliking Christmas. They have reasons such as "Christmas is too commercialised these days and it has now lost its real meaning and it is not the same as it used to be..."

Other reasons of them disliking Christmas are the costs of Christmas (they may be afraid of these costs), the hard work they have to get ready for Christmas; the decisions they have to make of what presents to buy for all their friends, family members, etc.

Christians and Christian Churches will say that December 25 is Jesus' birthday.

You may have heard that there are words in Christmas songs and carols that says that Jesus was born on Christmas Day, but there is nothing in Christian songs, carols, the Bible or any Christian book that says that Jesus was born on December 25.
