so I found some real information about christmas,NOTE: this is just to enlighten if you even want to be:
At one time the observance of Christmas was outlawed in Britain and America. The 17th century Puritans were offended by the overindulgence in eating and drinking that was a part of this celebration. In 1642 under Puritan rule all Christmas celebrations were forbidden by parliament. After the end of Puritan rule in 1660 these celebrations resurfaced. The word Christmas comes from Cristes maesse, an early English phrase that means mass of Christ. The word Xmas is sometimes used instead of Christmas. In Greek X is the first letter of Christ's name.
Santa Claus was brought into Christmas by the blending of pagan legends with traditions about saints. This traditional figure is known by different names in different counties; Father Christmas, St. Nichols, St. Martin, Pere Noel. The fireplace was the natural entrance and exit of the gods of fire and sun gods when they visited homes.
Christmas originated in the 4th century as a Christian substitute for pagan celebrations of the winter solstice. Before the introduction of Christmas, each year beginning on December 17 Romans honored Saturn, the ancient god of agriculture, in a festival called Saturnalia. This festival lasted for seven days and included the winter solstice, which usually occurred around December 25 on the ancient Julian calendar. During Saturnalia the Romans feasted, postponed all business and warfare, exchanged gifts, and temporarily freed their slaves. Many Romans also celebrated the lengthening of daylight following the winter solstice by participating in rituals to glorify Mithra, the ancient Persian god of light (Mithraims). These and other winter festivities continued through January 1, the festival of Kalends, when Romans marked the day of the new moon and the first day of the month and year. Although the Gospels describe Jesusí birth in detail, they never mention the date, so historians do not know on what date he was born. The Roman Catholic Church chose December 25 as the day for the Feast of the Nativity in order to give Christian meaning to existing pagan rituals.The Catholic Church hoped to draw pagans into its religion by allowing them to continue their revelry while simultaneously honoring the birthday of Jesus.
