I was just wondering, is there basically anything about Christmas now, that isn’t basically derived in some way from paganism? The only two things I can think of, are the birth of Christ, and the nativity scene.
Not that I think there is anything wrong with this. It all has to do with the spirit in which you celebrate the holiday, in my opinion. And if you need more than that, consider the Magi.
The Magi are where we get the word “magic” from. Yet, when they came to the birth of Christ, in the bible, they weren’t turned away. Jesus, Mary and Joseph certainly welcomed them. Think about it.
But back to my original question. Except for the birth of Christ, and the crèche, is it all just basically “pagan”?
