the tradition of Christmas is an 'inculturation' between Christian tradition and Pagan Tradition. before Christian era, the Roman Pagans celebrate their son God, Mithra, as the Sol Invictus - the invincible sun every December 25, the winter solastice. after the christians come, they 'christening' this tradition, and replace god Mithra, with our God, Jesus Christ. who is the true God, the Sun of Truth, that is, of course invincible.
now, people all over the world celebrate Christmas, not the festive of sun god Mithra, whose popularity has been 'conquered' by the true invincible sun, Our Lord and God, Jesus Christ.
unfortunately, there are some denomination of Christian who refuse to celebrate christmas, because of the history of it, they think that when we celebrate Christmas, we celebrate the sun god Mithra.
However, Merry Christmas! we celebrate Christmas, not only to remember the birth of christ, 2 millenium ago, but to remind us, to prepare ourself, for his second coming, that we expect. SOON
