The truth about Christmas

Okay, so I was realizing the other day, while trying to explain to Peanut the real reason we have Christmas, that I had no idea why we originally began to celebrate it! I know why St. Patrick's Day, St. Valentine's Day, Thanksgiving, Easter, Halloween and Columbus Day are acknowledged yet had no no earthly idea about Christmas. For shame!

So it was with great pleasure that I began to read Sheezlebub's post for today, one that she carried over from last year because the Christian fundie's are still trying to wage the same war against Christmas, or rather, against the more inclusive phraseology "Happy Holidays."

For the record, I already knew about Christmas trees and that they have nothing to do with baby Jesus.
