Who is Christmas really about? The sun god? Jesus? Or Santa?

Asked by JenniferP (2103 points ) December 19th, 2012

It is supposed to be honoring Christ, but the date and customs are associated with the sun god’s birthday (Jesus was opposed to pagan worship.) And who gets all the attention anyway? Jesus or Santa?

I compare it to this: Say you want to celebrate someone’s birthday. You celebrate it on the birthday of this person’s enemy and then give all your attention to another guest.
