Christmas as a tradition taken from many faiths

Solstice holidays are prominently celebrated the world over and are indisputably pre-Christian, many are even secular in nature. That is why it isn’t required that I believe in the fertility god Yule to celebrate Yuletide merrymaking; be Wiccan to deck the halls with holly or a Druid to kiss under mistletoe; believe in Thor, Odin, or St. Nicholas to enjoy night time gift giving, Saturn to decorate a tree with lights, or Mithras to celebrate the sun’s rebirth on Dec. 25th. Likewise, one doesn’t have to believe in Jesus Christ to celebrate the renaming of all of these holidays as Christ’s Mass.
