Christmas is a bundle of contradictions, inanities, and outright lies. The astounding fact is that most people are aware of this, yet still observe this pagan day.

Jesus was not born on December 25. The roots of Christmas are found in Saturnalia, and many of the trappings of Christmas are directly imported from paganism.
