You’re in a conversation and someone says, “Christmas is a pagan holiday, so Christians shouldn’t celebrate it.”
What would you say?
Perhaps you’ve heard a skeptic or maybe even a Christian claim that Christmas, including decorated trees, gifts, the date of December 25 and even the idea of a virgin birth are actually just leftovers that were taken from non-Christian religions. And because they are, Christians shouldn’t participate in Christmas celebrations.
So, the next time someone says, “Christmas is a pagan holiday, so Christians should stop celebrating it,” here are three things to remember:
First, Christmas is rooted in Scripture, and it’s always been about Christ.
Second, the date of Christmas probably has nothing to do with pagan festivals.
Third, it’s okay to adopt and redeem some pagan traditions.
