Christians didnt steal no Yule they quite evidently made some some sort of derivitive of it but the meaning that they made of it and the concept of it is to acknowledge the birth of Christ thats why its called CHRISTmas and not yule and it means Christs mass so people coming together to celebrate Christ. They didnt decide he was born on Christmas day - everybody knows he wasnt - they chose a day to remember his birth evidently because they dont know when he was born but still wanted to commemorate his birth somehow
Nope, the Christians stole Yule. Sugarcoat it all you want, but they stole Yule and made it their own celebration, with a focus on Jesus.
Like I said, Yule was originally a celebration of the Winter Solstice and that's what it will always be in my eyes.
I don't know why you're adamant on using the 'CHRISTmas' argument. It's not convincing and doesn't prove anything.
Just because Christians named the celebration Christmas many moons ago, for their
celebration of their
own beliefs, doesn't give definitive evidence that the entire point of Christmas is to come and celebrate Christ. That's just one demographic's interpretation of the event, which doesn't have to be believed by everyone.
I will celebrate Christmas because of the happiness it brings. I will celebrate Christmas to share gifts, love and spirit. I will celebrate Christmas to spend time with the family. I will do all of this without any thoughts that Christmas is all about Jesus, because quite frankly, the majority of the population don't do this either...
