Someone placed a post about CHRISTmas and the true meaning of it. This was our conversation:
We were discussing the facts about CHRISTmas and the meaning behind it. They were right it was originally a pagan celebration, however it was adopted by the Catholic Church. This was my response.
Skeeter says: Even though JESUS was not born on that day, in fact there is no record of the exact day that JESUS was born. However history has proof of HIS existence. December 25th is the day that is chosen to celebrate HIS birth. Red is for his blood that he shed for us and white stands for HIS purity and the CHRISTmas tree is the symbol of the cross that HE died on for our sins. That is why we celebrate CHRISTmas. It seems as though every one has an opinion of this date. But for me it is the day that I celebrate JESUS birth. Yes I do believe in JESUS CHRIST. Have a Marry CHRISTmas Brother.
