Here’s a recent comment left on the STR Blog:
Christmas is the Roman Catholic “christianization” of the pagan practices of the Feast of the Saturnalia, and has since incorporated many other pagan practices along the way. I don’t celebrate christ-mass solely because I am a Christian.
This challenge comes up every year. What do you think? Should Christians not celebrate Christmas? Tell us how you respond when this comes up, and we’ll hear Brett’s answer on Thursday.
There’s no challenge next week (we’re taking a break for Christmas…and yes, I realize the irony of writing that on this post), so this is the last challenge of the year. Great job this year! We look forward to seeing you here again in January.
