Very true.And so is the fact that 99.9% of christianity was derived from paganism.Without the ancient pagan religions,the christian religion would not have existed in it's modern form that we are all familiar with.

Welcome to the real world,fella.

Christians should not celebrate a pagan festival. In fact even if xmas really was for Jesus' birthday in the Bible we are not told to celebrate his birth, but to remember his death.

Yes Christmas is a pagan holiday!! The Encyclopedia Americana and even the New Catholic Encyclopedia state that the day of Christ's birth is not know. December 25th is a day  choosen to correspond with pagan festivals to celebrate the rebirth of a sun god. So a lot of christmas traditions are based on that celebration and festival. The Romans choose this correlation to try and get people to join the churches at a time when pagan practices abounded.
