Lutheran Satire -- Christmas origins

Every year, someone will insist that our celebration of Christmas is really one of pagan origins.

While the western Church has settled on December 25 as the day on which we celebrate Jesus' birth (the eastern Church opts for January 6), we also recognize that the Bible has not given us the exact date.  We honor December 25 not as a matter of doctrine, but of convenience.  The reality is that we celebrate the incarnation of our Lord whenever we come together, especially as we partake of Holy Communion.

Nevertheless, some Christians may wonder about the claims of pagan origins.

Lutheran Satire to the rescue!  Enjoy!
