Is Christmas Really a Pagan Holiday? (video)

Every Christmas, the charge is made that the holiday and its symbols were originally pagan celebrations that Christians usurped for their own purposes. Is this true? Is Christmas just a cheap imitation of a Roman Solstice celebration? Did Christians attempt to convert unbelievers by allowing them to keep their festivals? As the holiday season approaches, we'll show why such a charge can be easily dismissed.

For more videos, be sure to visit the Come Reason YouTube channel at 


  1. I'm guessing you bible thumpers find loads of stuff "easily dismissed".

  2. I would love for you to prove me wrong, Nancy. I'm looking at the primary source material. Can you provide any evidence to the contrary?

  3. Thank you for this! There are /Christians/ that I know who don't like Christmas because of its supposed pagan origins. Is there an article somewhere that deals with the same subject as this video? Preferably one that lists its sources? I'd love to have a link to share with people who wouldn't be willing to watch/listen to a long video/podcast.
