  1. Actually, they used fir trees decorated with red berries

    Oddly enough, the old testament says God hates the practice of cutting down trees and decking them with silver and gold (idol worship). ♪*•¸¸•*¨(¯`’•()• ’´¯)¨*•¸•*•♪ღ♪•*•.░H░A░P░P░Y░░N░E░W░░Y░E░A░R░░

    • It's also funny that early American Puritan Christians banned the celebration of Christmas because of just that lack of scriptural justification. Puritans back then would not have gotten along with the fundies we see today!

    Much too good. I had to share with my friends.

  4. Ken Harrison says:

    Thanks for a great take on this silly Xmas business. I say, "put the 'X' back in Xmas." Shepherds in the field, in December. Yeah, sure.

    • Jeff says:

      Actually, the X in Xmas, represents the word Christ. Latin for Christ is xcristos and in some circles it was considered blasphemous to use the name of the Lord so church scribes substituted the first letter of the name 'X' instead of writing the entire name so as not to anger God it was probably an effort to save time, ink and paper too.
