Merry “Feast of the Nativity”

  • Merry “Feast of the Nativity”

     

    God save us all from the League of the Perpetually Offended!  Christmas, for all its detractors, has suffered from a less than laudable past.  I have read, as stated in the opening quote, the name itself is a misnomer as it means the death sacrifice of Christ.  If so, wouldn't we be better served to observe Christmas at Christ's death vice His birth?  Per religious scholars, Jesus was probably born in the springtime, anyway.  There is absolutely no reason for December 25 to be the date other than crowding Easter, and Pope Julius I pulling the date out of his scarlet undies at random.
